Henry Piñango, MD is a board-certified specialist in Internal and Geriatric Medicine, who
also has assumed the role of LHC Hospice Medical Director as of Sept.
1. Henry attended high school in Indianapolis and later college at Southern
Adventist University, Collegedale, Tenn., where he earned his degree in
biochemistry. While working as a chemist in a battery factory, Henry realized
he loved to explore how things work, but the lack of human interaction
reminded him of life-affecting experience he had as a young adult. While
still a teen working as an aid in a nursing home, Henry discovered he
had a passion for caring for the aged. This discovery led him to enroll
at Loma Linda University to study medicine and meet his future wife, Kyra.
“Part of what I liked about the idea of moving to Livingston, was
the opportunity I have to serve the older generations here,” Henry
says. “I bring a perspective to geriatric care that includes the
whole picture of health – physical, mental and emotional –
that this population faces.” This population, incidentally, includes
Kyra’s 87-year-old grandfather who still drives a tractor.
