Dear members of the Downstate family,
Today we celebrated a life of one of Downstate’s finest, Dr. Theophillus Lewis. Hundreds joined in the T Building Auditorium at the Kings County Hospital to pay tribute to Dr. Lewis; a surgeon, a mentor, a friend. Downstate alumni spanning decades past to the current medical student were in the audience, along with local dignitaries, members of the Downstate and Kings County community, and of course Dr.Lewis’s children and family members.
Dr. Lewis was remembered for a humble, dedicated public servant that he was. Many spoke, but the most touching words were expressed by his children, Justin and Thea.
Dr. Lewis was a Brooklyn native and received his entire education in the SUNY system. He began his undergraduate education at the SUNY Oswego, then continued at the SUNY Downstate, where he received an MD degree, and then became a surgical resident at the SUNY Downstate Surgical Residency Program.
He spent his entire professional career in the Downstate system, where he held many positions of clinical and administrative responsibility. He dedicated his life to caring for women with breast cancer and educating students and residents.
The community and the Department of Surgery owe much to Dr. Lewis, and we will create an annual award to commemorate his service, contributions and humanity. Dr. Lewis’s legacy will endure.
Thank you to all who came from far and wide to be with your Downstate family, and for Dr. Albert Duncan, who sent a heartfelt video tribute.
