GET TO KNOW OUR BOARD MEMBERS:

D
DR. KATIE PALISOC

r. Kathryn (Katie) Palisoc is the
Hospitalist Director at UPMC
Memorial Hospital.
Katie
grew up in a small town called Highland
Falls, NY. She pursued her Bachelors of
Science in Biology at Canisius College in
Buffalo, NY. She received her Masters
in Biomedical Sciences at Midwestern
University in Downers Grove, IL. She
received her Doctorate of Osteopathic
Medicine at TOUROCOM-NY in
New York. After medical school, Katie
attended an Internal Medicine residency
at Palisades Medical Center in North
Bergen, NJ. In 2015, she moved to York,
PA and joined the hospitalist program at
Memorial Hospital. She joined the York
County Medical Society this past year,
and became the Vice President. She was
recently named the Hospitalist Director
at UPMC Memorial and looks forward
to this role.
What made you become a doctor?
When I was in middle school, I read
a book series called One Last Wish by
Lurlene McDaniel about children with
diseases. It made me realize that I wanted
to help people have the best life through
optimum health. My job is about helping
to heal patients while they are in the
hospital so that they can return to their
normal lives as soon as possible.
What do you enjoy most about
your job?
I love my job for many reasons. I love
working at a small community hospital
because of the family environment.

York County Medicine | WINTER 2019

I love the teamwork approach I have with
a multidisciplinary team. I like getting
to know my patients and their families
and see them improve throughout their
hospitalization.
What do you do in your spare time?
I spend all my time with my family.
My husband, Roger Palisoc, is a family
physician at UPMC Family Medicine
at Manchester. We have a wonderful 2year-old son, Aiden and I am currently
expecting a daughter in February 2020.
My husband and I love hiking, going to
amusement parks, playing at the park,
Science Museums, Children Museums,
swimming, or going to the zoo with
Aiden.
What is your favorite vacation?
We love going to Disney! Seeing the
magic through my son's eyes is a truly
special experience. Aiden loves seeing all
the characters and going on the rides.
Why do you think it is important to be a
member of the YCMS?
York County Medical Society allows
me to stay up to date with the current
trends in local, state, and national trends
in healthcare. It gives me an avenue to
advocate for the needs of my patients.
It also provides an arena to promote the
health and wellbeing of my patients in
York County.
