Dr. Steven H. Noyes, an attending physician at Erie County Medical Center for 27 years and a longtime associate professor at the University at Buffalo, died Saturday in Millard Fillmore Hospital after a brief illness. He was 58.
Born in Syracuse, Dr. Noyes earned a bachelor's degree at Syracuse University in 1969 and completed his medical school training at Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse, in 1973.
Three years later, he completed his residency in internal medicine and a medical oncology fellowship at E.J. Meyer Memorial Hospital. He joined the department of medicine at ECMC as a medical oncologist.
Most recently, the Amherst resident served as coordinator of the third- and fourth-year medicine clerkships at ECMC.
An accomplished clinician educator who taught both medical students and residents, Dr. Noyes had been an associate professor of clinical medicine at UB since 1990. He was certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
He was the recipient of the Siegel Teaching Award in 1985 and in 2002.
In addition to his university responsibilities, he served on several ECMC committees, including the Executive Committee of the Medical Staff, the Pharmacology and Therapeutics Committee and the State of the Hospital Committee. He also was chairman of the Health Information Management Committee since 1999.
Survivors include his mother, Helen Phares Noyes of Syracuse; three sisters, Cynthia Stroup of Manchester, Conn., and Jeanne Druce and Marilyn Townley, both of Syracuse; and two brothers, Frederick of Bloomington, Ill., and Phares of Bossier City, La.
A service will be at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in Tindall Funeral Home, 1921 W. Genesee St., Syracuse.
