With deep regret, we inform you that on February 16, at the age of 76, our colleague and friend — Arkady Shmilovich — has finished his earthly journey.
He was a Candidate of Medical Sciences, laureate of the Moscow City Prize in Medicine, member of the Board of the Russian Society of Psychiatrists, member of the Health Working Group of the Mixed Commission on Economic Cooperation between Russia and the Netherlands, president of the Interregional Public Organization "Club of Psychiatrists" ("Psychiatry: Ariadna's Thread"), head of the daytime care department at the Alekseevskaya hospital.

Big man. Huge heart. Long path of a hard work. All his life Arkady Shmilovich was selflessly devoted to his job — the rehabilitation and adaptation of the most, in his opinion, vulnerable category of patients — people suffering from mental disorders. Moreover, in this thing, he was a real fighter, a truly staunch tin soldier. He never gave up, was never discouraged. Even in the most difficult situations! It's impossible to count the number of patients who got their lives changed with his projects. He had pushed their horizons, gave them light of a beacon to follow! All this is beyond the power of an ordinary person. And Arkady Shmilovich, of course, was not ordinary. A man of indomitable energy, a workaholic — it seemed that he had a perpetual motion machine hidden inside his heart, a powerful battery that was destined to never be discharged.
Alas… Arkady Shmilovich was a true friend, ready to bring help at any time of day or night. Moreover, he was ready to come to the aid of both his colleagues and comrades and the families of his patients. It is amazing how, while implementing his global projects, he did not lose his vigilance and did not stop seeing the needs of the people around him! Thousands of us, whom he had helped and saved, will not stop thanking him even after his departing.
