Dillon Stein ’07 named one of top young physicians in Pennsylvania

Alfred University alumnus Dr. Dillon Stein ’07, director of Palliative Care Services at Butler Memorial Hospital in Butler, PA, was recognized as one of the top young physicians in state.

Stein, who earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Alfred University and medical degree from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, was listed by the Pennsylvania Medical Society as one of the top physicians under 40 in the state for 2023. To be eligible to receive the Pennsylvania Medical Society honor, physicians must be members of the Society, and all nominees are selected by colleagues and peers within the Society.

In 2022, Stein was one of just six physicians in the country to be recognized with the prestigious Hastings Center Cunniff-Dixon Award. The honor is given by the Cunniff-Dixon Foundation and recognizes clinicians for outstanding care provided to patients nearing the end of life. Stein was one of three physicians chosen for the honor in the early career category.

Stein was a standout member of the Alfred University men’s basketball team from 2003-07 and is listed among the Saxons all-time leaders in career scoring and rebounding. He was named the Empire 8 Conference Rookie of the Year in 2004 and was an Empire 8 all-star each of his four years at Alfred.
