KATZ--Lewis. Columbia University Medical Center's Division of Cardiology mourns the passing of Lewis Katz, trusted Medical Center Board of Advisor member, generous benefactor and special friend. Mr. Katz, along with his deceased wife, Marjorie, was an ardent supporter of Columbia's Cardiac Programs. Most recently, he named and supported the Lewis and Marjorie Katz Cardiology Patient Care Suite, the first space to be named at Columbia Doctors Midtown. Almost a decade ago, Mr. Katz established the Katz Prizes in Cardiovascular Research, highlighting the contributions of leading cardiovascular researchers nationally, and driving innovative research through his support of junior investigators at the dawn of their careers. Mr. Katz was loved and admired by those who knew him, especially his children and grandchildren who survive him. At a recent University event, he gathered his grandchildren together to expound upon the importance of philanthropy and giving back to the community. Our hearts go out to his children, Drew, and his wife Rachel, Melissa, and her husband, Steven, and his grandchildren, Ethan, Brooke, Taryn, and Remi. As we are saddened by his untimely loss, we will continue to be thankful for all that he has left behind. Allan Schwartz, M.D. Seymour Milstein and Harold Ames Hatch Professor of Medicine Chief of the Division of Cardiology
