Charles Mason von Henner M.D. was born in Rockland, Wisconsin. In 1946, he moved to California and completed a B.S. Degree at La Sierra University. From there, he earned his M.D. at Loma Linda University in 1950 and accepted a one-year surgical internship at Harris Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Dr. von Henner enjoyed his time at Harris Medical Center so much, he stayed on as a General Surgeon for another year, but in 1952, Dr. von Henner changed course and accepted an administrative role at Santa Anna Medical Center. During his last year as an administrator at Santa Anna, he was featured in Life Magazine, and decided to pursue administrative work in the medical field. To this end, he returned to school, successfully completing a J.D. Degree at the Baylor University School of Law in three years – an admirable achievement given his full workload – and accepted a position at Baylor University as their Medical Services Director, where he worked for two years.
In the intervening years, Dr. von Henner held positions in Industrial Medicine, Trauma Surgery and as Chief of Surgery at a number of different Texas hospitals. A Reserve Corps member since the late 1940’s, Dr. von Henner joined the U.S. Navy in 1967, achieving the rank of Captain during his three-year service in Vietnam; upon his return, he became a Colonel in the Marine Corps Reserve, serving until 1976. Upon his return from overseas, Dr. von Henner began to move throughout the country, holding surgical and administrative positions in Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio, Texas, California, and Michigan; he also completed D. Min. and Master’s of Public Health Degrees. He remains a Member in Good Standing with the Tri-County Medical Society, Texas Medical Association, American Academy of Family Practice, American Medical Association, and World Medical Association.
Dr. von Henner is licensed to practice medicine in Texas, Tennessee, California, and Canada, and continues to educate himself in the latest medical advancements. For his dedication to remaining current, he has received the American Medical Association (AMA) Physician’s Recognition Award with Commendation twice. He recently completed his ATLS (Advanced Trauma Life Support) Recertification, through the American College of Surgeons, which extends his certification through August 2016. He holds fellowships with the American Academy of Family Physicians, American College of Abdominal Surgeons, American College of Angiology, American College of Legal Medicine, American College of Preventative Medicine, and the Royal Society of Health, England, among others, and holds memberships in dozens of other medical organizations. Dr. von Henner also has a host of decorations, medals, badges, commendations, and other military awards, including the Legion of Merit, National Defense Service Medal, Navy Unit Commendation, Viet Nam Service Medal with Bronze Star, and the Vietnamese “Medal of Honor” 1st Class. His most recent clinical experience is with Volunteers in Medicine, an organization out of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Dr. von Henner is currently the CEO of MICARE, his own international healthcare consulting firm for which he travels to low-income cities all over the world in order to help and improve the quality of life of children. As the CEO for the past 3 decades, he has been the coordinator of the construction of over a hundred clinics, schools and orphanages for children in need in addition to the general population. When asked about why he established MICARE and its mission he said “It stands for my care of you – not the governments, not anybody else’s,” he explains.
Explaining his unstoppable work ethic and motivation to keep practicing after 65 years in the medical field, Dr. von Henner says, “I am challenged every day by medicine, health and welfare for the human race, and the problems affecting our society in this day and age.” He is grateful for his good health and “zest for living” and steadfastly insists: “I look forward to another 15 to 20 years of fruitful living, as all of my ancestors were vigorous until 90-100 years of age.”
