NOMINATE YOUR DOCTOR FOR THE KAPLAN COMPASSIONATE PHYSICIAN AWARD!
Murrel H. Kaplan, M.D. was the Chief of Internal Medicine at Touro Infirmary from 1957-1962 and served his patients and the hospital with distinction as a member of the medical staff for 50 years, from 1937-1986.
The Kaplan Compassionate Physician Award bearing his name was generously endowed by his family and friends in December 1986.
Today, the award recognizes a Touro physician who demonstrates compassion, empathy, respect for the patient as a whole person, and genuine care for the patient’s welfare for which Dr. Kaplan was so highly esteemed.
The physician must be an active physician with Touro Infirmary who demonstrates compassion and respect for their patients, staff, and peers.
