Reception Honoring the Late Dr. Joseph Pitone Held at Jefferson Stratford Hospital
Friday, March 03, 2023
A plaque was unveiled at Jefferson Stratford Hospital in honor of the late Joseph Pitone, DO, on March 2, 2023. Dr. Pitone, who died in 2018, was a beloved physician who had served as Medical Director of the Kennedy and Jefferson Health New Jersey Dialysis Program since its inception in the 1990s.
Known as a true advocate for his patients, his legacy was honored by his wife, Gail, who made a generous gift in support of the Dialysis Program at Jefferson Health NJ. A plaque was placed in Dr. Pitone’s honor outside of the hospital’s inpatient dialysis unit (and also at the dialysis unit at Jefferson Washington Township Hospital).
Several friends, colleagues, and family members, spoke at the reception, attended by Gail Pitone, his children – Melanie, Michael and Matthew – their spouses, and his six grandchildren.
