Sinai Hospital’s Leon Reinstein, M.D., Awarded Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation’s Highest Honor

We are excited to announce that Leon Reinstein, M.D., associate physiatrist-in-chief of
Sinai ReinsteinRehabilitation Center, has been given the Frank H. Krusen, M.D., Lifetime Achievement Award by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R). He was chosen for the academy’s highest honor based on his outstanding and unique contributions to the specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation in the areas of patient care, research, education and administration.

Dr. Reinstein has been a respected figure in the physical medicine and rehabilitation community for the past 40 years. He joined Sinai Hospital in 1985. Through his expertise, the hospital established a reputation as one of the mid-Atlantic’s leading comprehensive rehabilitation centers.

Among his most significant accomplishments was the leading role he played in the opening of the Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit in 1985. This 23-bed unit was recently joined by its sister unit, the 20-bed Louis and Phyllis Friedman Neurological Rehabilitation Center.

Reinstein has authored 34 publications and has given 300 national presentations throughout his career. He holds a clinical professorship at Virginia Commonwealth University.

He received the award during the AAPM&R’s annual assembly at National Harbor, Md., on October 5. The Frank H. Krusen, M.D., Lifetime Achievement Award is named after the academy’s fourth president, and Krusen was the award’s first recipient in 1972. The AAPM&R is the national medical society for more than 8,000 physicians specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

  • It was an indoor beach party at the annual reunion of #SinaiHospital’s Jennifer Gandel Kachura Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (#NICU). Hundreds of people came together with NICU #caregivers last weekend to enjoy face painting, leis, food and toys. Above all, they celebrated how much each graduate has grown since last year’s reunion. Thank you to all who participated and to the fantastic #doctors, #nurses and other caregivers who attend to Sinai's littlest #patients day in and day out! #event #reunion #healthcare #Maryland #LifeBridgeHealth
