Dr. Hill was a neurologist in Mansfield. He came here in July of 1988 and joined Mansfield Neurology. He joined OhioHealth in 2014 and practiced until his death August 30, 2017, just days after his 67th birthday.
Cyndi said,“Stephen gave his life for his patients.”
While with Mansfield Neurology, he and his partners traveled weekly to cities surrounding Mansfield, such as Mt. Vernon, Ashland, Galion and Norwalk, to continue to service as much of this area as humanly possible. He was known to his friends, family, coworkers and patients as a diligent, patient and devoted caregiver who treated every patient with dignity and compassion.
He graduated from Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH and earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. He completed a surgical internship at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. He completed a residency in neurosurgery and a fellowship in biochemical neuropathology from The Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus.
