N.C., AdventHealth Hendersonville Welcomes New Certified Physician Assistant to Hospitalists Team

Feb. 9, 2020; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – AdventHealth Hendersonville is excited to welcome Sean Snowden, PA-C to its team of Hospitalists caring for patients in its hospital. Snowden is a certified physician assistant with a broad range of clinical training including Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine.

Snowden has a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Florida State University in Tallahassee, Fla, where he also studied chemistry. He graduated from the Keiser University Physician Assistant Program in December 2019.

Snowden says he was drawn to medicine because it has an inherent capacity to influence people in a positive direction. “I am looking forward to engaging and caring for those patients under my care. I do this by listening to them. Many times, patients just want to talk about what is on their mind and their concerns. It’s my job to listen well.”

Snowden says AdventHealth’s efforts to carry out its mission of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ in tangible ways drew him here. “Additionally, the consensus of the community outside the hospital is that AdventHealth is the hospital that people prefer to go to because the people there are actually nice.”

Being able to call the mountains of Western North Carolina home is also appealing to Snowden and his growing family. He and his wife will soon be welcoming their third son. They love to spend time outdoors, hiking and climbing. In fact, Snowden and his wife have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

AdventHealth’s promise to provide whole-person care – body, mind and spirit is a natural fit for Snowden, who spends dedicated time growing his understanding of God and the Bible. “Ultimately spirituality ranks most highly as it influences and maintains every other thing that I find important - family, friends, meeting needs in the community, and being outdoors.”
