On Friday, June 13,2014, our beloved Dr. Arnold Lazar passed away.
Dr. Lazar was co-founder of this practice. He touched many lives and delivered thousands of babies in his 37 years with OB & GYN Specialists. He held several leadership positions at Orlando Health, and has received many honors throughout the years. To our practice, he was the dreamer, mentor, protector of patients, voice of reason and fairness, and the "heartbeat" of our group. He was an example of a physician that truly cared for his patients and their well-being, and was often the last to leave the office each day because he spent extra time helping someone through a difficult time.
The funeral for Dr. Lazar will be Sunday, June 15 at 11:00 a.m.
Temple Israel Cemetery
9200 Morton Jones Road
Gotha, FL 34734
Dr Arnold Lazar was honored at a party in his honor on May 6, 2014 for his many years of service to the Orlando Health Hospital System. He has served the hospital in various leadership positions, including his most recent role as Chief Quality Officer. He is a great communicator and educator, so it is fitting that the learning classrooms at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies are now named the "Arnold J. Lazar,MD Conference Center."
Over 200 of Dr Lazar's friends, family and colleagues were in attendance to honor him. They enjoyed some of Dr Lazar's favorite things including: Twizzlers, Ice Cream and his love of cycling. His best friend and founding partner of OB & Gyn specialists, Dr Don Diebel spoke about the early days in practice and at the hospital. Kathy Swanson (President of Arnold Palmer medical Center), and Dr Mary Farrell also spoke about Dr lazar and all of the wonderful things that he has done to improve healthcare for patients in Orlando over the years. Congratulations to Dr Lazar !
I recently lost one of my best friends to cancer. I am overwhelmed with the amount of sadness I feel...nothing really prepares you for this. My friends are helping to ease the pain. You could argue that maybe this is because my partners in the practice (who are also my friends), are going through the same grief, and therefore we are commiserating with each other. But, my non-physician friends do just as great of a job in helping me to feel both physically and emotionally better, even without having that personal connection to my friend who passed away.

Working with the March of Dimes and the Florida Perinatal Quality Collaborative, Winnie Palmer Hospital instituted new guidelines aimed at reducing “Early Elective Deliveries” (EED) for non-medical reasons prior to 39 weeks gestation (the guidelines do not apply to medically-indicated reasons for early delivery).
