Provider Spotlight!

Dr. James Stuart, Surgery Associates of York Hospital, has been on staff here in York since January of 1974. While the “usual” background information regarding his education and medical training
is interesting to know, even more interesting is the institutional history and the anecdotal information that Dr. Stuart has stored up the sleeves of his white coat after more than four decades of being a provider and a caregiver at York Hospital! We would like to take this opportunity to share a bit of both types of information. Dr. Stuart received his BA from Albion College in Albion, Michigan, and his MD from | Wayne State University College of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan. He completed a Rotating Internship at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine and a Residency in General Surgery, also at Maine Medical Center. Dr. Stuart is Certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow at the American College of Surgeons.

Back in the 1970s when Dr. Stuart joined York Hospital, there were no ambulances for the hospital. The local undertaker transported patients to the hospital in a vehicle similar to a modern hearse. When ambulances did start being used to transport patients to York Hospital, it was Dr. Stuart who trained the first EMTs riding on the ambulances. In 1974 there were 10 physicians total at York Hospital. If you stop Dr. Stuart in the hall today, he will still be able to tell you their names and what most of their work schedules were! On most Saturdays, the physicians would eat lunch in the cafeteria together – oftentimes with other employees or patients’ families. Another example of the kind of tight-knit community that defined York Hospital even back in the 1970s is that when Dr. Stuart performed surgeries, the assistant in the OR was typically the patient’s referring doctor, as opposed to another general surgeon or first assist.

These anecdotes illustrate that the philosophy of Loving Kindness has been an important aspect of how York Hospital has grown over the past four decades, and that Loving Kindness has guided Dr. Stuart as a physician, a caregiver and a colleague for more than 40 years. Kudos to Dr. Stuart—thank you for being an ambassador for York Hospital and a role model for all of us!
