Dr. Moneesha Pinto

The new members include Dr. Moneesha Pinto, an internist at the King City Clinic, and Dr. Noah Hawthorne, an emergency medicine physician at Mee Memorial. The appointments add to the expertise, experience and diversity that make up the current board.

Pinto, who will be named chief of staff, began working with MMHS in July 2017. Born in Mumbai, India, she had never been out of the country until moving to San Jose at age 16. Her grandaunt was one of India’s first female doctors. Having lost both her husband and child to Yellow Fever, she dedicated her life to treating women in distant villages without any healthcare options.

Pinto did undergraduate work at Santa Clara University and went to medical school at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb. She prefers the quiet pace of rural life and likes to travel, cook, eat, garden and read.

Hawthorne received his medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco’s School of Medicine in 2013. He completed his residency in emergency medicine at the university in 2017. He loves travel, photography, scuba diving, mountain biking and cooking.
