MURRAY — Dr. Dewey L. Dean, pathologist and laboratory medical director at MCCH has announced his retirement is set for June 30.
Dean received his B.S. degree from Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He completed his medical degree and PhD in experimental pathology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston in 1986. Dean was Board Certified by the College of American Pathologists upon completion of his residency at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, in anatomic and clinical pathology.
He joined the medical staff at MCCH in 1992. Dean has served as medical staff president and currently serves as the cancer conference coordinator and on the cancer committee. He also served for eight years in the USAR Medical Corps.
“I was blessed to have landed in this great town of Murray at MCCH where the surgeons and medical staff have been excellent colleagues. It has been a fantastic journey but I can’t wait to see what life holds for me and my family in the next chapter,” said Dean.
Upon retirement, Dean said that he and his wife , Robin, will move to Lexington to be near their daughter, Hailey, and grandson, William. Their son, Kyle, resides in Nashville, Tennessee, where he is the director of the neurodiagnostics training program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Dean will officially retire on June 30, which is a very significant date for several reasons, including it is Robin’s birthday, as well as their 40th wedding anniversary. A joint retirement celebration has been set for Saturday to recognize Dr. John Yezerski and Dr. Dewey Dean on their retirements.
