SYRACUSE — Onondaga County Executive J. Ryan McMahon, II recently announced the appointment of Dr. Carolyn H. Revercomb as the Onondaga County medical examiner.
Dr. Revercomb currently serves as the assistant medical examiner/deputy chief medical examiner for the New Jersey Southern Regional Medical Examiner’s Office. She has held that position since February 2016. Revercomb, a forensic pathologist, also previously served as assistant medical examiner for the state of Rhode Island, according to a Providence Journal article.
She received her undergraduate degree from Yale University and her medical degree from West Virginia University.
The appointment requires confirmation from the Onondaga County Legislature. Revercomb’s nomination is scheduled to go before the county legislature’s Health Committee in May with a confirmation vote tentatively slated for the June session of the legislature. Her start date will be after that, according to Justin Sayles, a spokesman for the county executive.
Revercomb replaces Robert Stoppacher who was fired earlier this year.
