PAH Unveils Portrait to Honor R. Michael Buckley

Buckley-portrait-with-groupLast month, Pennsylvania Hospital added a new piece of artwork to its Swift Gallery: a portrait of R. Michael Buckley, MD, the hospital’s former executive director. His portrait hangs amidst more than 40 portraits of the hospital’s leaders dating back to 1912.

Buckley first came to Penn as a fellow in Infectious Diseases in 1975 and built an impressive record of service to the Health System, its patients, and the Philadelphia community. Over the years, he oversaw some of the hospital’s most significant growth, from the integration of its physician practices into the Health System to the opening of Penn Medicine Washington Square.

“I knew when I took on this role 18 months ago that I would have big shoes to fill. Mike had been a tremendous leader of our hospital, undeniably leaving his mark here and on the Penn Medicine family,” said Theresa M. Larivee, PAH chief executive officer. “It has been an honor to pick up where he left off and to lead Pennsylvania Hospital with the same commitment, dedication and thoughtfulness as he did.”
