Henry Piñango, MD, is a board-certified specialist in Internal and Geriatric Medicine, and
the Livingston HealthCare Hospice Medical Director. 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.
