Dr. Patrick Henry Macedonia, 77, of Steubenville, Ohio passed away on August 16, 2023 after having received heroic medical care and surrounded by his family. He was born March 16, 1946, the youngest son of Olga Cincione Macedonia and Dr. Domenic Macedonia. His greatest achievement in life was that of Husband, Dad, Pappap, Brother, Uncle, Doctor and Friend.
He is survived by his beautiful wife Carol (Hosfeld), with whom he would be celebrating his 52nd wedding anniversary on August 21, 2023. In addition he is survived by Deneen (Chris Winslow) and their children (Giovanni, Siena, Arden, Nick and Michael) of Commerce, Michigan; Jason (Tracy) and their children (Luca and Emilia) of Columbus, Ohio; and Anthony (Rachel) and their son (Patrick) of Delaware, Ohio. He leaves behind his sisters Rita (Joseph) Torrez and Annetta (Hope), brother Dr. Dominic (Debby) and many heartbroken nieces and nephews, friends and colleagues. He is preceded in death by his brother Dr. J.J., his mother Olga and his father Dr. Domenic.
He was a 1963 graduate of Catholic Central High School. Dr. Pat graduated from the University of Steubenville in 1968 where he was a member of the Alpha Phi Delta Fraternity. He earned his medical degree from the Universidad of Autonomy de Guadalajara in 1972. He completed internships in Columbus and Morristown, NJ. Following his residency at Mt. Carmel Hospital in Columbus from 1974-1978, he joined an OB/GYN practice on Brady Ave. He practiced there until 1984 when he went into solo private practice in his current office location at Ohio Valley Hospital, now called Trinity Medical Center East where he continued treating his patients and operating until the week of August 7.
A most respected and dedicated physician, he cared deeply about his patients and spent countless sleepless nights bringing new lives into the world for the first 27 years of his practice. In 2005 he expanded his practice to include Aesthetic Medicine as well as continuing to operate and provide Gynecologic care.
As his practice continued to grow, his passion for elevating the quality of medical care being delivered in the area also grew. He held and currently holds numerous distinctions throughout his distinguished 45-year career. Notable positions at Trinity Medical Center include being elected Chief of Staff (2 terms held until 2008), past Medical Director Ross Park Surgical Services, past Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology Departments, and currently serving on the Medical Executive Committee (2014-Present), Department of Surgery Chairman (2014-Present), Steubenville Board of Health 18 years and elected as President of the Jefferson County Health Department for two terms (2019-present), Quality Council Committee (present), Chairman Performance and Improvement Committee (present) and Chairman of the Robotic Steering Committee (2013-present).
Dr. Pat could always be relied upon whether it was for good counsel, a huge smile, or an engaging conversation on just about any topic. He was interested in anyone and anything. In the morning he’d appear and ask, “What are we going to do today?”. He had unlimited energy and motivation. This is reflected in his many hobbies including spending time with family, boating, anything on the river, dreaming about owning a hot dog stand, Model railroading, wandering hardware store aisles, snowmobiling, laughing, collecting cars, telling stories, camping, jeeping in the woods, making pizzelles, raviolis, shrimp scampi, meatballs and sauce (with his carefully cultivated team), restoring classic cars, beaching, flying kites, snow skiing, waterskiing, keeping family traditions, bus trips, and running remote control anything.
He had conviction in his belief that tomorrow would be a better day, or at least another day to try again. He believed that worrying was a waste of time and energy. He was generous with his time and always prioritized family first always.
The depth of his loss is felt so profoundly because of his capacity to love so fiercely. His commitment to his family and his medical profession is undeniable and apparent to all. We are broken but choose to be comforted knowing his legacy will live with us, and through us forever.
Dr. Pat was a lifelong member of St. Pius X Church and now Triumph of the Cross at Holy Rosary.
Visiting hours will be Sunday August 20 from 1-4pm at Mosti Funeral Home and a Celebration of Life Mass will be on Monday August 21 at 11am at Triumph of the Cross. Procession will continue to Mount Calvary Cemetery.
