Mount Nittany Health Welcomes Kayla Malackowski, PA-C, Hospitalist

Mount Nittany Health is pleased to introduce Kayla Malackowski, PA-C, as a new hospitalist who will be treating patients in the Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Malackowski joined Mount Nittany Health after working as a physician assistant in Altoona. She was drawn to her current position, motivated by the positive reputation of the Mount Nittany Health, and felt it was the perfect match for her expertise and dedication to patient care.

“I emphasize the importance of patient involvement in their healthcare journey and the collaborative nature of the decision-making process,” said Malackowski. “I firmly believe patients should be informed and empowered to make choices aligned with their healthcare goals.”

Malackowski holds a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience and a Master of Physician Assistant Studies from Grand Valley State University.

As a healthcare provider, Malackowski is inspired when people achieve their desired results and when she can see healthcare interventions work as intended. This motivates her as Hospitalist to provide the best possible care to her patients. Malackowski’s past experience includes specialization in obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN).

Outside of her medical practice, Malackowski enjoys spending quality time with her beloved pet, a springer doodle named Radar. She was recently married and enjoys reading, working on puzzles, and indulging in her hobby as an amateur line dancer. These interests highlight her dedication to balancing her professional life with personal activities that bring joy and fulfillment.

Malackowski’s commitment to community and mentorship extends beyond healthcare. She serves as a sorority advisor for Alpha Sigma Alpha at Penn State, providing guidance, support and mentorship to students.

Malackowski, PA-C, is a valuable addition to Mount Nittany Health. We look forward to the positive impact she will continue to make on our patients and the community.
