PHC’s Farewell To Two Physicians
Martin A. Grossman, M.D., President of the Peninsula Hospital Center’s Medical Board, along with fellow Medical Board members, bid farewell to two physicians who are retiring from the practice of medicine and from their positions at the Hospital Center.
Narendra K. Hadpawat, M.D., Chief, Division of Cardiology, former Director of Medicine and former President of the Hospital Center’s Medical Board, is retiring from the practice of medicine this month. Dr. Hadpawat, a highly respected specialist in the field of cardiology, has also earned himself the reputation as an excellent educator. To commemorate this occasion, he was presented a plaque by two of his former students citing his dedication and his devotion to teaching at the Hospital Center. Adding to the poignancy of the meaningful words on the plaque, every current resident signed his or her name to the document. Dr. Hadpawat has been a member of the physician staff at the Hospital Center for 30 years.
Also retiring from the Hospital Center’s staff is Aaron Nesoff, M.D., Associate Director of the Family Health Center and former Director of the Family Health Center and former Director, Family Practice Residency Program. Dr. Nesoff is well known at the Hospital Center and by his many patients in the Family Health Center for his excellence in the field of Primary Care and for being an excellent mentor as part of the Department of Medical Education. Dr. Nesoff is held in the highest esteem by the hundreds of residents who were under his tutelage throughout his more than 30 years at Peninsula Hospital Center. He was presented with a “team” photograph of many former and present colleagues.
“While we understand that physicians also need to retire at a certain point, it is always difficult to see them move on,” said Medical Board President Martin A. Grossman, M.D. “We wish them both the very best in their respective retirements, but want them to know that they will be missed by those they treated, by those they taught and by their colleagues.”
