In Memory of Alan Levine

Alan M. Levine, M.D., director of the Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute for Sinai Hospital and Northwest Hospital Center and an internationally known orthopedic surgical oncologist, passed away suddenly Oct. 25, 2009. Dr. Levine founded the Cancer Institute and had been instrumental in its growth and success.

"Alan's death is a shock and a huge loss," said Warren A. Green, president and chief executive officer of LifeBridge Health. "He was an extraordinary figure with a bigger-than-life personality. He had an enormous talent for doing a lot of things well."

Through his leadership and tireless efforts, the Cancer Institute has become a center of excellence in the treatment of cancer in Baltimore and beyond. Dr. Levine was a strong and positive force, and leaves behind a lasting impression on all of us.
