Internal Medicine Physician Joins Nantucket Cottage Hospital

NANTUCKET – Nantucket Cottage Hospital has announced that Dr. John D’Avella has joined the hospital’s medical staff.

The internal medicine physician has spent more than 30 years in Connecticut specializing in nephrology and dialysis as well as serving as the professor of clinical medicine at the University of Connecticut School Medicine. In 2016 D’Avella was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Kidney Foundation of Connecticut.

D’Avella, who has vacationed on the island for years, will initially join Dr. Diane Pearl’s practice on a part-time basis, while also providing nephrology consults in the hospital’s medical and surgical units and in the emergency department. He will be accepting referrals for patients with kidney issues, difficult to manage hypertension, diabetes, and kidney stones.

“I am excited to join the talented medical staff at Nantucket Cottage Hospital and to become part of the year-round island community,” said D’Avella. “I look forward to engaging with patients and colleagues to meet the medical needs of the island.”
