General Surgeon Dr. Larry Dashow was elected by the members of the Pender Memorial Hospital medical staff to serve a 2-year term as the Chief of Staff from Feb. 1, 2009 until Jan. 31, 2011.
In his role as Chief of Staff, Dr. Dashow will serve on both the Pender Memorial Hospital and New Hanover Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees. He will also act in coordination and cooperation with the hospital administrator in all matters of mutual concern with the hospital.
“I am delighted to be working with Dr. Dashow as the newly elected Chief of Staff at Pender Memorial,” said David Long, administrator. “He has been a tremendously active member of our medical staff and he’ll bring experience and leadership to the table.”
Dr. Dashow received his medical doctorate from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, PA, and completed his residency and surgical fellowship at Beth Israel Medical Center in NY, NY. He was a distinguished surgeon for 12 years in the Philadelphia area before moving to North Carolina in June 2003 to open his practice in Burgaw.
“I headed to Burgaw to start my new practice because of the community feel I got when I came to visit,” said Dr. Dashow, a Paterson, NJ native. “I have lived in the area for almost six years and I can’t see any other location I’d rather be. I want to see Pender Memorial Hospital grow and provide the best medical care for all of the people of Pender County and the surrounding areas.”
Dr. Dashow has one daughter, Sarah, who attends North Carolina State University and a 5-year-old puppy named Jake.
