Serving as CEO and founder of Medweb, Peter Killcommons has undertaken many philanthropic projects since the company’s inception in 1992. He has served on the hospital ship USNS Comfort, and aided remote villages as far away as Tristan da Cunha.
Educated by the City College of New York and New York Medical College in an accelerated medical program, Peter Killcommons completed his BS-MD in six years, with honors. Applying his medical knowledge to the then-fledgling world of the Internet, Peter Killcommons’ company built the foundation for its leading RIS/PACs telemedicine portal. Employing a grant from CALREN (California Research and Education network), Peter Killcommons’ company began a project that would link hospitals using resources from Pacific Bell. During this innovative time, Peter Killcommons was featured on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle, highlighting his work on medical technology on the Internet. Currently offering a range of highly advanced medical services, Peter Killcommons’ Medweb provides clients with cloud solution technology, virtualPACS gateways, 3D web-based diagnostic viewers, clinical screening tools, and digital orthopedic solutions, among others.
Peter Killcommons continues to pursue work that aids others and has donated much of his time, medical knowledge, and resources to aiding isolated areas with supplies and medical treatment. He continues to volunteer his piloting skills to the organization the National Institute for Urban Search and Rescue, as well as support the American Red Cross and Pens for Peace, a project that provides Afghan schoolchildren with pens and works to smooth relations between the local people and the US Military.view less
