Tuality Healthcare is pleased to welcome Peter Hahn, M.D., FCCP, FAASM, to the medical staff.

Dr. Hahn is a board-certified and fellowship-trained pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine specialist who was recruited from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., to serve as medical director of Critical Care and Sleep Medicine for Tuality Healthcare.

With extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases, Dr. Hahn will also open a pulmonary specialty outpatient practice in association with Hillsboro Internal Medicine.

Dr. Hahn earned his medical degree at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.

His training next took him to the Mayo Clinic where he served his internal medicine residency and completed fellowship training in pulmonary and critical care medicine, and a Mayo Foundation Scholar fellowship in sleep medicine.

During this time, Dr. Hahn received the Mayo Brothers Distinguished Fellowship Award, which is given to individuals who best reflect the co-founders’ “ideals of humanism, scholarship, clinical excellence, and teaching.” He was awarded the Burgher Family Endowed Fellowship, given annually by the Mayo Clinic Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine to the most outstanding trainee. And he was elected by his peers to serve two terms as president of the Mayo Fellows Association, representing about 1,000 residents and fellows.

Dr. Hahn stayed on with the Mayo Clinic as a consultant in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, and the Center for Sleep Medicine, where he was actively involved in patient care as well as teaching and research. He also was an assistant professor of medicine in the institution’s College of Medicine.

An elected fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), Dr. Hahn has served in many regional and national leadership roles, including on steering committees for both the AASM and ACCP. He also is a member of the Society of Critical Care Medicine and the American Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology.

In addition to his role at Tuality, Dr. Hahn has been appointed to the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland.

When away from his practice, he enjoys participating in competitive soccer and tennis, and playing the violin. Dr. Hahn is married, has two children, and one large Bernese Mountain Dog.
