Flavio Kruter, M.D., hematology/oncology, and medical director of Carroll Hospital Center's oncology services, was named Carroll Hospital Center's April Physician of the Month. A physician affiliated with Carroll Hospital Center for 20 years, Dr. Kruter was recognized for his exceptional care of a cancer patient that left a lasting impression on the patient's family members.
"Dr. Kruter is highly deserving of this award," Mark Olszyk, M.D., Carroll Hospital Center's vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer, said. "He is an exceptional physician whose level of care consistently raises the bar and makes an enormous difference in the lives of his patients and their family members."
Each month, Carroll Hospital Center recognizes the extraordinary patient care achievements of physicians, as well as physician assistants, nurse practitioners and certified nurse anesthetists, with a program called Physician WOW Service Awards. From those who are nominated to receive Physician WOW Service Awards each month, one Physician of the Month is chosen.
