Connecting with Matt Callahan, DO

Dr. Callahan is the newly appointed President of Paoli Hospital’s Medical Staff. In his two-year term, he will represent the Medical Staff in many different aspects of the hospital’s administration—including a designated role on the Paoli Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees. “I want to encourage members of the Medical Staff to participate in philanthropy. Paoli is a wonderful hospital and we all benefit from working in this environment surrounded by compassionate, skilled people—at every level in the organization. I am very committed to the personal relationships I have here and view my charitable support of the Paoli Hospital Foundation as a special way to extend that commitment. During my tenure as President of the Medical Staff, I will encourage many of my physician colleagues to do the same.”

While his colleagues and patients often feel like a second family, Dr. Callahan looks forward to spending time with his wife and two grown sons as often as possible. Together, they enjoy sharing lively conversations around the kitchen island and an occasional Frisbee toss enhanced by Dr. Callahan’s margaritas. As a former Marine Officer, Dr. Callahan also enjoys military history and a range of physical activities—particularly biking and swimming.

Paoli Hospital celebrates cancer survivors

In honor of National Cancer Survivor’s Day® cancer survivors, their family members, friends and caregivers were invited to an evening of county western-themed music, dancing, food and fun during the Cancer Center at Paoli Hospital’s Annual Celebration of Life. This annual event serves as an opportunity for cancer survivors to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way. It is also a day to draw attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship in order to promote more resources, research, and survivor-friendly legislation to improve cancer survivors’ quality of life.

To support Paoli Hospital’s Cancer Center and supportive programs like this one, make a donation to the Cancer Center Fund at the Paoli Hospital Foundation. Your gift can be made in honor of a loved one or as a tribute to a Cancer Center physician, nurse or staff member.
