Dr. Stanton was appointed to the Robert C. and Laura C. Garrett Endowed Chair for the School of Medicine Dean.
“Endowed chairs are among the highest honors conferred in academia, and the $15 million in support of endowments at Hackensack University Medical Center reinforces its role as one of the top-ranked academic medical centers in the country,” the health system said in a statement.
“Dr. Stanton has practiced with distinction as a physician and academic, and will continue to bring the highest standards in medical education to the next generation of physicians,” Garrett said.
Stanton was recognized for her achievements in medical education and pediatric medicine — which include consulting with the World Bank, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.
