Dr. Austin Boggan of Newton retired just a few months ago after more than 50 years of service.
A wing of Newton Regional Hospital was dedicated in Dr. Boggan's honor Friday.
"This is a very flattering occasion. I wasn't expecting it," said Dr. Boggan. "They really caught me by surprise, but I have enjoyed the past fifty or so years that I have been able to work. "
The construction of a new hospital facility in Newton is scheduled to begin in June 2004.
