Anthony W. Czerwinski, M.D.

The dialysis unit at INTEGRIS Southwest Medical Center is named in honor of a longtime member of the hospital’s medical staff. The unit was dedicated in memory of Anthony W. Czerwinski, M.D., on Feb. 10. That date was specifically chosen because it would have been his 81st birthday.
The Anthony W. Czerwinski, M.D., Dialysis Unit, as it is now called, is a fitting tribute to a man who committed his life to medicine.
Czerwinski was born Feb. 10, 1934. He began practicing internal medicine and nephrology at INTEGRIS Southwest Medical Center in August 1982. He would remain with the hospital for 32 years. He was still practicing medicine at the time of his passing last November.
Czerwinski, who was lovingly known as “Dr. C,” served as the hospital’s chief of staff for seven years. He held many leadership roles throughout his tenure, serving on the board of directors from 1995 to 2005, as chairman of the medicine department from 2002 to 2007, and on the medical executive committee from 1987 to1993 and then again from 2002 to 2007.
Czerwinski touched many lives and his presence is greatly missed, but his memory will live on forever in the hearts of everyone who knew and loved him.
