"It is an awesome privilege to be able to impact lives every day through medicine. It doesn’t matter if I am working in a rural village in Africa or home in North Carolina, helping children achieve health is what being a pediatrician is all about! Whether working on the pediatric hospitalist team at New Hanover Regional Medical Center or serving as a medical missionary in Kenya, Dr. Cook has imparted his wisdom and philosophy of compassionate care to medical students and residents throughout his career. Originally from Oklahoma, he has lived in North Carolina since 2011, and his wife, Becky, was born in Wilmington. Dr. Cook has worked as a pediatric hospitalist at New Hanover Regional Medical Center since moving here and served as medical director of pediatric and newborn services in 2014 and 2015. For two years, Dr. Cook and his family lived in Kijabe, Kenya where he provided pediatric care to resource-poor and orphaned children at A.I.C. Kijabe Hospital. While there, he provided pediatric training to local Kenyan physicians. Dr. Cook has a heart for missions and has been actively involved in Samaritan’s Purse and Freedom Baptist Church."
