Geriatric Psychiatry Department
This KUDOS award recognizes Mark H. Fleisher, Associate Professor in the Geriatric Psychiatry Department at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Mark cares primarily for mentally ill patients. A population that can be particularly challenging, he has always demonstrates great caring, skill, devotion and countless hours toward.
In addition to his clinical role, he has multiple administrative, academic and research responsibilities. He has become a champion to many who have found themselves in an awkward situation and not sure how to represent themselves or their opinion. He takes this action with great poise, tact and grace so that the individual feels supported.
Mark also brings a great sense of humor to his job: one which enables him to put escalating situations at bay so as to put a lighter spin on the particular problem and see that it is resolved for the good of everyone involved.
