The Family Medicine model at our Woodward and Brown Square sites draws its strength from the careful, consistent building of a lifetime relationship of respect and trust between physician and patient.
W. Stewart Beecher almost became a psychologist, but ultimately decided his journey would be in medicine. He started his family medicine practice at Woodward in 1981 when it was operated by Westside Corporation—and he’s still with us today!
Dr. Beecher’s heart finds true expression with the uninsured/underinsured:
He has an appointment at URMC as clinical assistant professor of Family Medicine.
He dedicated two days a month to Mercy Outreach Center as a volunteer physician from 1982 to 2014.
He has been involved with DePaul (mental health and housing advocates) since 1984, including service as its Board Chair.
For these reasons and more, Dr. Beecher is the 2015 Recipient of the Jordan Health Lifetime Achievement Award.
