Hospital Foundation statement on the passing of Dr. Allan Lysack
On behalf of the Dauphin Hospital Foundation, we offer our sincere condolences to family and friends on the passing of Dr. Allan Lysack.
“Dr. Lysack really loved and enjoyed his work over the years at Dauphin Regional Health Centre (DRHC) and he was so very dedicated and sincere in helping his patients,” stated Greg Thompson, Chairman, Dauphin Hospital Foundation.
“Only once in a lifetime do you get to know and appreciate a person like Dr. Lysack, who helped shape the provision of health care in Dauphin and rural Manitoba early in his tenure. A truly caring and compassionate individual, we are saddened to learn of his passing, but will always acknowledge the legacy he left not only in health care, but within the community overall.”
Dauphin General Hospital was Dr. Lysack’s first post after he graduated from Medical School in 1965. His medical career in Dauphin spanned over five decades and he retired officially in 2017. In 2009, he was recognized for over 45 years of service as a surgeon at Dauphin Regional Health Centre.
Dr. Lysack was instrumental in collaborating with colleagues to establish the province’s first rural intensive care unit and also worked with other physicians to plan for the Dauphin Medical Clinic (adjacent to the DRHC) back in the 1970’s. In 2002, he was appointed to the Order of Canada by then Gov. General Adrienne Clarkson.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Lysack family during this difficult time.
