Charles P. Fasano, DO


With the passing of Charles P. Fasano, DO, in 2009, Evangelical Community Hospital lost a dear friend and the community lost a treasured healthcare leader. The community continues to benefit from his legacy through The Charles P. Fasano, DO Memorial Lecture Fund.

The Fund was established by the Fasano family, The Family Practice Center, and two generous friends of Dr. Fasano. The appeal was extended to Dr. Fasano’s physician colleagues and members of the community, resulting in a total of $277,000 in commitments to date.

The Fasano Memorial Lecture Fund provides for an annual healthcare lecture for physicians, clinical staff, business leaders and the community at-large on a topic of mutual interest.
