Susan G. Bornstein MD, MPH

Susan G. Bornstein grew up in Louisville, KY and is a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Medicine. Upon completion of her internship and residency at the University of Pittsburgh’s Magee Women’s Hospital, she returned home to Louisville. She practiced general Obstetrics and Gynecology for over a decade, then focused on a Gynecology only practice. Increasingly distressed by the challenges her patients faced obtaining timely, affordable healthcare, she pursued a Master’s in Public Health in Healthcare Management and Policy at the University of Michigan. Upon completion of her degree, with mixed emotions, she left clinical practice to focus on patient advocacy and much needed reform of the healthcare delivery system.

Dr. Bornstein maintains continuous certification from the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a member of and Past President of the Greater Louisville Medical Society, a member of and Delegate to the Kentucky Medical Association, and served for 17 years on the Board of the Kentucky Physicians Political Action Committee.  She also served on the board of the Greater Louisville Health Enterprises Network. She is a graduate of the Leadership Louisville class of 2003, Emerge Kentucky Class of 2020, and a member of Kentucky Voices for Health.

A strong advocate of medical education, throughout her career Dr. Bornstein has been on the clinical teaching faculty of the University of Louisville Department of OB/GYN.

She was voted a Top Doc by Louisville Magazine in 2016 and 2017.

Dr. Bornstein’s goal is to harness her extensive experience educating patients and medical students, and use this to help legislators and their constituents better understand the content and consequences of proposed and enacted healthcare policies, as well as developing health-related policies that will best serve the needs of the people. She strongly believes that healthcare is a right, not a privilege, and should be accessible,without prejudice, to all.
