Rushville's Dr. Dohner Joins IDOA Hall Of Fame
Dr. Russell Dohner of Rushville is among the latest inductees to the Illinois Department on Aging’s Senior Hall of Fame.
The 88-year-old physician has treated patients in west central Illinois since 1955. He still makes house calls, patient rounds at the local hospital and nursing home, and is known to charge patients only $5.00 for the entire cost of visits. Dohner served as the 2013 Illinois State Fair Parade Grand Marshal.
From the Dept. on Aging:
“The Senior Hall of Fame was created by the Legislature in 1994 to honor Illinois residents age 65 and older who excel in the categories of community service, education, performance/graphic arts, and the labor force, in regard to their employment. Each inductee is chosen through a statewide nomination and selection process. Since then, 91 people have been inducted into the Hall of Fame including this year’s winners.”
