Matthew Scott Szarko, M.D., M.P.H., has been recognized by the State Journal as part of the 2022 Generation Next: 40 Under 40. As a pathologist at WVU Medicine United Hospital Center, he feels strongly about taking care of the residents of a state that has provided so much for him. The award speaks to the success that can be achieved within West Virginia.
Dr. Szarko received his medical degree and completed his Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Residency from West Virginia University School of Medicine in Morgantown. He finished his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in the Mountain State.
Although Pathology may be less visible on the front lines of public health, it certainly plays a significant role in safeguarding the public by identifying infectious diseases, such as COVID-19.
Dr. Szarko has spent his entire career at either a West Virginia business or at a WVU Medicine hospital, having worked at both Camden Clark Medical Center in Parkersburg and now at United Hospital Center (UHC) in Bridgeport.
In addition to being a staff Pathologist at UHC, he is also credentialed for five hospitals in North Central West Virginia. Dr. Szarko is board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology by the American Board of Pathology and he is currently the secretary of the West Virginia Association of Pathologists.
This native of Parkersburg met his wife, a Fairmont native, while attending college in Morgantown. He now resides in Bridgeport with his wife and two children since 2017.
