Honoring Robert Keast on his retirement

April 6, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Accolades and Milestones

Robert Keast is retiring from the Department of Internal Medicine after serving more than 22 years supporting the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and also the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. 

For many of us, he has been so much more than our division administrator – he has been a mentor, role model, advisor, confidante and friend. 

Robert’s accomplishments are many, and among some of the greatest include tremendous growth of CVM with introduction of many specialty programs, thoughtful and successful financial management, development of new satellite programs and contracts, facilitation of the cardiovascular division move to the ‘new’ CVC, and prior oversight and direction of the Cardiac Procedures Unit.

There are countless ways in which Robert has contributed to our department and the health system, and he will be remembered for his commitment to the department, to the faculty of Cardiovascular Medicine and to the department’s division administrator and director team.      

Please join us in congratulating and thanking Robert for his years of dedicated and committed service, his thoughtfulness and hard work, and, most importantly, his friendship. A reception will be held on Tuesday, May 3 from 2-4 p.m. in the CVC Board Room, 5321. Remarks will take place at 2:30 p.m.
