Parrish Medical Center Welcomes New Emergency Department Medical Director, Gregory P. Cuculino, MD, FACEP
TITUSVILLE, FLA. (Sept. 26, 2017)— Gregory P. Cuculino, MD, FACEP, an Emergency Room physician leader who was twice recognized as a “top doctor” while with a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania hospital system, is Parrish Medical Center’s new Emergency Department Medical Director.
Dr. Cuculino comes to PMC from Crozer-Keystone Health System in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Dr. Cuculino chaired the Emergency Departments of the system’s four hospitals, which are staffed by 50 emergency medicine physicians and 20 advanced care practitioners who see more than 120,000 emergency room patient visits annually.
Dr. Cuculino, board-certified in emergency medicine, is a Fellow of the American College of Emergency Room Physicians (FACEP).
He was twice recognized as a “Top Doc” in Main Line Today magazine, a regional magazine serving the Philadelphia area. In 2013, he was named a Main Line Today “Health Care Hero” for his work in stroke awareness. Under his chairmanship, the Emergency Room of Taylor Hospital in Ridley Park, Penn., earned National Research Corp.’s Innovative Best Practice Award for commitment to improving patients’ experiences.
Dr. Cuculino said PMC’s “atmosphere of genuine caring for patients” was his reason for accepting this position after he and his wife decided to relocate after spending the last 18 years in Pennsylvania.
“I was very impressed with PMC’s people and their emphasis on a healing environment,” he said. “A hospital building can be made to look impressive, but what matters goes beyond what you can see. The friendliness of the PMC care partners and the way the Care Partners genuinely care for their patients, and for each other, were the deciding factors for me.
“That atmosphere of caring is where I want to be,” he added. “I look forward to being a part of accomplishing great things for the people served by PMC.
”Dr. Cuculino earned his medical degree in 1996 from the Medical College of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and completed his residency in Emergency Medicine in 1999 at Christiana Care Health System Medical Center of Delaware.
