Cleveland Clinic doctor fired after making antisemitic statements online
Cleveland, OH – The Cleveland Clinic released a statement Monday after reports began circulating online that a doctor at the hospital had been posting antisemitic sentiments on social media.
The doctor, who has been identified as Lara Kollab, 27 of Westlake, was a supervised resident. We’re told she is no longer employed by the clinic.
We reached out to the Cleveland Clinic and received the following statement:
“This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to September 2018. She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic. In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system.”
Kollab is no longer employed at the clinic, but her medical license remains active. Issued in Cuyahoga County in July 2018, it is valid until June 2021.
