Andrew J. Norton, of Blue Bell, a former senior vice president and chief medical officer for Main Line Health, died of complications from a rare autoimmune disease on September 6 at Lankenau Medical Center. He was 64, writes Bonnie L. Cook for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Norton joined Main Line Health eight years ago and continued working until July when health issues forced him to stop.
“He was down to earth, extremely bright, and often preferred the back stage,” said Jack Lynch, president and CEO of Main Line Health. “He was someone you could count on, not a yes man; he was looking out for the best interests of the community we serve.”
Norton loved teaching the medical students and residents at the hospital and he always made it clear that education and sharing his knowledge was his passion.
As the leading physician at the health system, he also always pushed for safer, improved, equitable, and patient-centered medicine.
“A provocative thinker, he was always challenging the status quo and took great satisfaction in doing so,” said Main Line Health in a statement.
