Pattullo got his start in healthcare as a switchboard operator at Lincoln (Neb.) General Hospital. Thirty-two years later, Pattullo would retire as senior vice president and trustee of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, where, during his tenure, he would award $700 million in grants.

He is credited with developing graduate and undergraduate programs in healthcare administration, and was influential in creating the American Hospital Association’s Hospital Research and Educational Trust and the Association of University Programs in Health Administration.

Pattullo once said, “From a philanthropic perspective, I have believed that a key ingredient in moving a field forward, and hospitals are a good example, is betting on people and particularly those people who have a conviction that the status quo is not good enough.”
