PUTNAM — Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) held a dedication ceremony at the hospital recently to honor longtime community medicine physician and director of internal medicine for Day Kimball Medical Group, Dr. Ronald Klare.
Dr. Klare joined DKH in 1978 and stands as the longest serving community medicine physician currently on the medical staff. The hospital’s administration elected to name the medical surgical waiting room after him in recognition of his 41 years of service and in commemoration of DKH’s 125th anniversary.
 “Dr. Klare and the Woodstock Medical practice have played an important role in providing our community with high-quality, patient-centered care throughout his 40-plus year career,” said Joseph Adiletta, interim president, Day Kimball Healthcare. “The excellent care Dr. Klare provides to his patients and his commitment to the community has touched many lives. For these reasons and more DKH leadership has chosen to honor Dr. Klare in this way.”
Dr. Klare’s roots at Day Kimball began in 1966 when he was initially employed as a medical/surgical orderly at the hospital. He earned his medical degree from New York University School of Medicine.
Dr. Klare’s father, Dr. Rudy Klare, opened his medical practice in Woodstock in 1955 as part of the inaugural class of board-certified family practice physicians in the U.S. Dr. Klare joined his father’s practice in 1978 upon completing his residency at Bellevue Hospital in New York and the two physicians opened the Woodstock Medical practice in its current location.
