Bradford Regional Medical Center to honor Singh, Nadella, Bauer

Posted on: 02/25/2019

Bradford Regional Medical Center will hold its ninth annual Spring Swing Gala April 13 at the Pennhills Club in Bradford, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The 2019 dinner dance will honor V. Rao Nadella, MD, and Dilbagh Singh, MD, with the Physician Medical Excellence Award and Dean Bauer with the Community Philanthropy in Excellence Award.

Drs. Singh and Nadella are a unique, close-knit physician team serving patients in Bradford, Eldred and Shinglehouse for 40 years. Their collaborative medical effort has endeared so many members of the county who have been served by them for four decades. Their team approach has been the glue of modern day rural healthcare delivery with such far reaching positive benefits for the community.

“Drs. Singh and Nadella have been a consistent face of quality healthcare in the community for forty years. Their love for this community and for BRMC has long been felt,” said Timothy J. Finan, president and chief executive officer, BRMC, Upper Allegheny Health System.

Bauer first came to Bradford 46 years ago to continue his career in banking and finance. He has served the community through service in numerous organizations including 20 years on the Bradford Hospital Foundation board, and 40 years with the Kiwanis Club of Bradford and the First Presbyterian Church. His work ethic is shown while picking up garbage on Main Street, mowing the McDowell Trail at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford or maintaining the grounds at the Kiwanis Tree Farm.

“Dean Bauer’s combined service to our country and communities has been very significant and commendable,” Finan said. “For almost 50 years, he has been helping others, including our hospital, and we are proud to honor him this year.”

“On behalf of the Bradford Hospital Foundation, I congratulate this year’s honorees. We are most grateful for the ongoing philanthropy that continues to benefit BRMC. This significant support, while recognizing the extraordinary contributions of our honorees, continues to provide much needed funding for critical upgrades and resources for BRMC,” said William Pantuso, board chairman, Bradford Hospital Foundation, who will serve as the event’s emcee.

Early event lead sponsors include the medical staff at BRMC/Olean General Hospital, Zippo Manufacturing Co., The Blaisdell Foundation, Ann and Dick Kessel/Kessel Construction, American Refining Group, Sundahl Insurance Co., Mr. and Mrs. Paul Ridley, Northwest, and the Still family.
