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

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’
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
