(Sioux Falls, SD) – The Polish Medical Society recognizes Sanford Clinic physician Adam Stys, MD for his voluntary work in Europe.

Dr. Stys is chairman of the hospital’s Consultants Board, which is comprised of interventional cardiologists practicing in Europe, Canada and the U.S and provides guidance and quality assurance to this very busy institution. Dr. Stys is one of the first physicians from around the world honored with this award.

“I think in medicine, we are not only physicians, but we are also teachers,” said Dr. Stys. “I am very honored and touched to receive an award bearing Dr. Bieganski’s name. Through his work, he educated millions of people and improved healthcare quality throughout the world.”

The Polish Medical Society presents the Dr. Wladyslaw Bieganski Award to physicians who demonstrate superior ethics and commitment to quality of care in medicine. Dr. Bieganski was a 19th century physician and philosopher from Czestochowa. Dr. Bieganski studied in Warsaw and then specialized in Berlin and Prague.
