Robert F. Goldberg, MD (Res Grad) (1925-2014) 

 

Robert F. Goldberg died peacefully on June 12, 2014. He was 88 years old. He is survived by Sylvia Lewis Goldberg, his wife of more than 60 years. Born in Columbus on AugDr. Goldberg.jpgust 29, 1925, Bob attended the Columbus Academy and Cornell University, and received his medical degree from New York Medical College in 1948. He did post-graduate training in internal medicine at the University of Cincinnati and, after serving as a physician in the United States Navy from 1950-52, returned to Columbus, where he was the first endocrine fellow trained at The Ohio State University. He married Sylvia Lewis in September 1953. Along with five other doctors he founded the Central Ohio Medical Group where he worked for four decades. Among his professional accomplishments, he served as Chief of Medicine at St. Anthony's Hospital and Chief of Medicine at Grant Hospital and was a clinical professor at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Bob became a specialist in treating diabetes. He initiated the diabetes care unit at Grant Hospital and was a pioneer in diabetes training to nurses and other professionals at that hospital. He also was actively involved with Camp Hamwi, a camp for diabetic children. After retiring from the full-time practice of medicine, Bob served as medical director at two insurance companies, Motorists Mutual and Grange Insurance. Bob served for seven years as a governor's appointee on the Ohio Department of Aging Advisory Board. In addition, he served on the boards of a number of non-profit organizations including the Ohio Historical Society, the Ohio Historical Society Foundation, the Central Ohio Diabetes Association and the Jewish Family Service. Bob was an avid golfer and played until nearly the end of his life. His career included three holes in one. One of his pleasures was travel, and he traveled throughout the world (including Europe, South America, and Asia) with a group of close friends. In addition to Sylvia, Bob is survived by his three children, Tom and his wife Lynn Goldberg of Westport, Connecticut, Jo Anne Jedd of Glen Ridge, New Jersey, Don and his wife Anne Carlson of Bethesda, Maryland; and by eight grandchildren, Dr. Carolyn Goldberg Butler and her husband Dr. Philip Butler, Mark and Dan Goldberg, Ben, Alex and Robert Jedd, and Melanie and Kate Goldberg. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Ohio History Connection (formerly Ohio Historical Society), 800 East 17th Street, Columbus, Ohio 43211, or the Central Ohio Diabetes Association, 1100 Dennison Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43201.
