Dr. Flavio Kruter,
hematology/oncology, and medical director of Carroll Hospital Center's oncology services, was named Carroll Hospital Center's April Physician of the Month.
Affiliated with the hospital for 20 years, he was recognized for his exceptional care of a cancer patient that left a lasting impression on the patient's family members.
Each month, Carroll Hospital Center recognizes the extraordinary 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; and from a year's worth of winners, one Physician of the Year is selected.
