'61 Alum, Richard Ruppert, MD Passes 

 

A  Class of 1961 graduate, Dr. Ruppert returned to Ohio State after finishing his residency at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago to serve as chief resident and later as professor of gastroenterology.  He also served as assistant dean for the OSU College of Medicine and later as medical director for patient services. He was named the College's man of the year in 1970.

Dr. Ruppert served as the Ohio State Board of Regents' vice chancellor for health affairs from 1974 until 1977 and thereafter served 16 years as the president of the former Medical College of Ohio in Toledo, now known as the Medical University of Ohio at Toledo, until his retirement in 1993. As MCO’s third president, he oversaw a period of rapid growth in programming, faculty and campus facilities. He oversaw completion of an MCO hospital during his 16-year tenure, as well as other multimillion-dollar building projects that included Dowling Hall and the Coghlin rehabilitation pavilion; the Kobacker Center; the Henry L. Morse Sports Center, and an ambulatory care center, which in 1993 the board of trustees named for Dr. Ruppert.

Dr. Ruppert was known as for his community service and leadership. He was a former board president of the Ohio Historical Society, and during his retirement served on the boards of the Hayes Presidential Center and the Fort Meigs Historical Society. He was also a former campaign chairman for the United Way of Greater Toledo and a former president of the Toledo 
Rotary Club.
