Sarah Plummer, MD

Chair of the Diversity, Health Equity & Inclusion Advocates


Sarah Plummer, MD is a pediatric cardiologist at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio.  She completed her undergraduate education at Princeton University, and earned her medical degree from Duke University in 2006.  Dr. Plummer then completed her residency in pediatrics at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh before returning to Duke University to complete her fellowship training in pediatric cardiology as well as advanced cardiac imaging.  She completed her training in 2015 and moved back home to Cleveland, Ohio for her position at Rainbow.  Dr. Plummer is the Director of Quality for the Rainbow Heart Center, as well as Co-Director of the Single Ventricle Program and Director of the Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Outcomes Initiative.

Dr. Plummer’s research and clinical interests are thus in quality improvement – particularly in the inpatient setting, the care of the patient with single ventricle heart disease, neurodevelopmental outcomes in children with congenital heart disease, echocardiography, and the diagnosis and management of fetal heart disease.   In addition, she believes in the best outcomes for all patients and that all patients deserve to receive equitable care regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation.  It is this belief that has fueled her desire to improve health equity for pediatric cardiology patients and their families.
