The Sprandio Family of Physicians in Southeastern Pennsylvania Spent the Year Supporting their Local Cancer Community While Also Providing Research and Treatment to COVID Patients
Dr. John Sprandio Sr, founder and president of CMOH, along with his sons Dr. John Sprandio Jr. and Dr. Brian Sprandio, were all named as Main Line Today Top Doctors for 2020.
[Broomall, March 31, 2021] – Consultants in Medical Oncology and Hematology (CMOH), an independent oncology practice and a member of The US Oncology Network, is proud to recognize a family of doctors who have delivered for their community during one of the most challenging years in healthcare. As coronavirus cases began to rise, the Sprandios dedicated themselves to researching, treating, and supporting COVID-19 patients while also providing unparalleled clinical expertise and care for cancer patients, exemplifying their compassion and commitment.
Dr. John Sprandio Sr. is the founder and president of CMOH. He set out to create an oncology practice where his patients are at the center, getting unparalleled access to personal and attentive care with all the support they and their families deserve. He implemented a groundbreaking care model that simultaneously increases the quality of cancer care while lowering the cost for patients in southeastern Pennsylvania. In pursuing this vision, Dr. Sprandio successfully created the nation’s first Oncology Patient-Centered Medical Home.
“Over the past 10 years we have dedicated our efforts to driving consistency of care by enhancing the level of service and services to meet our patient’s needs. The way we execute care results in standardized treatment, greater efficiencies, healthier patients, lower overall costs, and consistently high patient satisfaction. When the pandemic hit, I am proud to say that all the work we had implemented prior really helped prepare us for this moment. I am also honored to have built an independent practice where I can practice medicine alongside two of my sons.”
Dr. John Sprandio Jr. joined CMOH as a medical oncologist in 2014. As the eldest son, he cites his father’s work and the relationships he built with patients as an inspiration. With his father as his mentor, Dr. Sprandio Jr. pursued oncology and hematology. Also inspired by his father and brother, Dr. Brian Sprandio is a palliative care specialist working in the community. All three men provide coordinated and compassionate care to both cancer and COVID-19 patients.
“My dad and John have both been dealing with the hematological affects the coronavirus has on individuals,” said Kate Ells, daughter of Dr. John Sprandio Sr., “and they have worked diligently to apply their medical home model principles to COVID-19 patients, such as promoting the standardization of steroid and anticoagulation therapy in both inpatients and outpatients early on in the pandemic. Brian works directly with COVID patients and their families. He is seeing firsthand the struggle and heartache associated with both a cancer diagnosis and the pandemic but thankfully they have been able to coordinate care in a way that uniquely meets patient and family needs during this difficult time. I am so very proud of the work they have done and continue to do.”
Outside of work, John Jr. and Brian often get together with their three other siblings and are busy with activities centered around John Sr.’s and his wife’s 13 grandchildren, demonstrating that their practice does not just feel like a home, it is home.
We are pleased to recognize these outstanding physicians and honor the impact they are having on our community. To schedule an appointment with Dr. John Sprandio Sr. or Dr. John Sprandio Jr., visit CMOH.org or call 610-492-5900.
