PPH Welcomes New Medical Director

Posted on: Jun 09, 2022

PPH is excited to announce that Dr. Larry Spector has joined the PPH family as Medical Director.

Dr. Spector attended Abington High School and the University of Delaware. Dr. Spector graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1994 and has spent his career caring for the greater Philadelphia community. He is board certified in internal medicine and completed his residency of Internal Medicine at Christiana Care Health Services in Christiana, DE.

Dr. Spector was actively involved in the Regional Congregate Care Assistance Teams (RCAT), a Pennsylvania Department of Health Covid-19 support program. During the height of the pandemic Dr. Spector’s willingness to work with PPH was much appreciated.  Not only did Dr. Spector offer support and guidance during the most difficult times, the RCAT team provided much needed supplies including iPads for Google Duo calls to keep residents and families connected as well as personal protective equipment for staff during time of national shortages.

Dr. Spector is a member of the American Osteopathic Association and is currently a physician with Temple University Hospital, Jeanes Campus in Northeast Philadelphia, Dr. Spector is passionate about providing quality care to his patients, and educating and empowering the staff on his team.

We are excited to enter this new partnership with Dr. Spector.

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
