Dr. Angel Arnaout received the Order of Ottawa last week at City Hall. In a media release announcing the inductees, Mayor Jim Watson said, “Inductees into the Order of Ottawa are remarkable residents who are being honoured for their service to our city through a variety of professional and civic-oriented endeavours.” Dr. Arnaout was recognized as "one of Canada’s leading breast surgical oncologists. With knowledge, skill, dedication and compassion, she continues to improve the care of cancer patients while reducing the need for chemotherapy in breast cancer patients." Greg Kane, a member of The Ottawa Hospital Foundation's Board, was also among those honoured. In 2012, Dr. John Bell was an inaugural inductee.
