Last Updated: Dec 12, 2018

The following is a statement from Martin Raniowski, Executive Vice President of the Pennsylvania Medical Society. Mr. Raniowski reacts to the passing of former PAMED President Raymond Grandon, MD.

“On behalf of the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) and our 21,000 members, we extend our deepest condolences to the family of Dr. Raymond Grandon.

His dedication to patients and the profession of medicine serves as an example that all physicians can emulate.

We are grateful for his decades of leadership at PAMED.

For 11 years, Dr. Grandon chaired PAMED’s Council on Scientific Advancement, which was responsible for our continuing medical education activities. He was also a fixture on PAMED’s Board of Trustees, serving as PAMED President in 1982.

Other notable accomplishments included organizing the first televised heart surgery in the 1950s, and an appointment by Gov. Milton Shapp to the State Board of Medical Education and Licensure in the 1970s.

Dr. Grandon made a lasting mark on generations of patients in the Harrisburg area as an internal medicine physician and pioneer in the field of cardiac rehab. When he retired in 2015, at age 96, he was considered one of the world’s oldest practicing physicians.”
