David and Pam Christaldi
Whether tinkering at his hobby of restoring automobiles or pursuing his life’s work of helping repair ailing hearts, David Christaldi has never been hesitant about being in the driver’s seat. Twenty years ago, he and cardiac surgeon Dr. John Krahnert started the open-heart surgery program at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital. Today, Christaldi serves on the Board of Trustees for the Moore Regional Hospital Foundation and has helped steer FirstHealth toward building one of the finest cardiac services facilities in the country with the Reid Heart Center.
Pam Christaldi, an adult nurse practitioner, is equally supportive of the Stepping Stones Campaign and is also a strong advocate for the new FirstHealth Hospice House. Thanks to the guidance of the Christaldis, we are heading in the right direction of continued medical excellence.
“The road to world-class health care is filled with many twists and turns, so we decided to take the wheel to help guide FirstHealth along its path to becoming one of the nation’s top hospitals for cardiovascular care.”
