Steven Bachrach, M.D.
Steve is a general pediatrician, who is board-certified in neurodevelopmental disabilities, and he has spent his career working in both these areas. He began his career at the Children’s Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia where he was first the Director of Pediatrics and then the Medical Director. He then became the Chief of General Pediatrics and the Co-Director of the Cerebral Palsy program at the AI duPont Hospital for Children. In 1986 he first became involved with HMS, serving as the Associate Medical Director under Dr Milton Sarshik. After Dr Sarshik’s retirement in 1987, he became the Medical Director of HMS, and continued in that role until 2016, when he retired from clinical work. He is very excited to be able to continue his association with HMS by joining the board, and hopes to help the school continue to meet its mission.
Steve and his wife Pearl Elias have four children, and eleven grandchildren, and when not in Philadelphia, can usually be found visiting one or more of them.
