Dr. Bennett deBoisblanc named Spirit of Charity Award winner for 2017

In 1998, the Spirit of Charity Foundation created the Spirit of Charity Award to recognize a physician whose career began or was nurtured in Charity Hospital. Even though the hospital did not reopen after Hurricane Katrina, the foundation is dedicated to ensuring that the values of caring for the whole community from birth onward endured, now turning its attention to supporting University Medical Center of New Orleans (UMCNO).

On Oct. 6 at the JW Marriott Hotel, the foundation honored Dr. Bennett deBoisblanc, currently the Fred Allison Jr. Professor of Medicine and Physiology and directs the new state-of-the-art Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) at UMCNO.
