THE HENRY P. RUSSE, MD
CITATION FOR EXEMPLARY COMPASSION IN HEALTHCARE
HENRY P. RUSSE, MD(February 12, 1928-May 10, 1991) served as Dean of Rush Medical College at Rush University Medical Center and served five terms as President of The Institute of Medicine of Chicago during an extraordinary decade of personal and professional commitment to the advancement of medicine. To recognize his contributions, the Trustees of Rush University Medical Center and The Institute of Medicine of Chicago have established the Henry P.
