Eleven former or current Boca Raton Regional Hospital physicians have been nominated for the Palm Beach County Medical Society’s Heroes in Medicine Awards and will be honored at the Society’s ninth annual luncheon, at the Kravis Center on May 9.
For the Lifetime Achievement Award, community outreach hero finalists include the following retired physician volunteers at Caridad: Richard F. Auclair, Arnold Berliner, Howard Doyle, Gordon Hahn, James Jannotta, Leo Quinn and Martin Rubenberg.
Physician International Hero finalists are Howard Goldman and Jeffrey Miller.
The local/national hero finalist is Joseph Forstot.
The awards distinguish individuals and organizations in the health care field that provide exceptional services to meet the needs of the community. Nominees were judged by a committee chosen by the Palm Beach County Medical Society Services.
