Berks County Physician Recognized as “Everyday Hero” by Pa. Medical Society

Last Updated: Dec 15, 2021

Shawn White, MD, FACS, a board-certified urologist and partner at the Center for Urologic Care of Berks County and Chief of Urology at Reading Hospital, has been recognized by the Pennsylvania Medical Society as an Everyday Hero Award winner.

Upon receiving the award, Dr. White said he was honored and thanked his team for their hard work. “This award is really reflective of the work of our practice. My partners and I are blessed to work with fantastic staff that genuinely treat our patients like family. While I am the one accepting this award, this is really our award.”

Dr. White received his medical degree at Temple University School of Medicine and stayed in Philadelphia for his urology residency at the University of Pennsylvania. Having grown up in Lititz, PA, he wanted to stay in the region after completing his training and, in 2011, he joined the Center for Urologic Care of Berks County. Being an independent physician, he is also on the staff of the Reading Hospital and Penn State Health St. Joseph’s Medical Center. He lives in Berks County with his wife, Meghan, and three children; Teddy, Winn, and Jane, saying his family “provides the balance in my life”.

He attributes his success to a long list of influencers in his life, both past and present, highlighting his colleague and friend, Dr. John Henry, who passed away in July 2021.

“John’s technical skill, impeccable clinical judgement, and wit are a constant source of inspiration as I transition into my new leadership roles. If I can care for this community even half as well as John did, I’ll have done something right.”

PAMED’s Everyday Hero Award, launched in 2018, is designed to showcase talented physicians who go above and beyond in their profession and in providing patient care.
