HARRISBURG, Pa. – David Hennessey, MD has been named May’s Everyday Hero by the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED). He is a pediatrician who recently retired from active practice after 33 years of caring for patients at Sewickley Valley Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine (SVPAM) in Wexford, Pa.,
PAMED’s Everyday Hero Award is designed to showcase talented physicians who probably don’t view themselves as heroes, but to patients and colleagues they are. The award is a monthly member honor.
Dr. Hennessey is known by patients and colleagues as a physician who consistently went above and beyond for his patients, spending as much time as necessary. For the past several years, Dr. Hennessey has also participated in medical mission trips to Guatemala. He completed his most recent mission trip this month.
Dr. Hennessey earned his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and completed a residency in pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati, Good Samaritan Hospital. He joined SVPAM in 1986 and was an SVPAM partner.
PAMED presented Dr. Hennessey with the Everyday Hero Award on May 15, 2019. A brief ceremony was held in his honor at SVPAM’s Wexford office.
