February 25, 2022 – It is with great sadness that KIDZ Medical Services announces the passing of Daniela Egas-Bejar, MD, a beloved pediatric hematologist-oncologist. Dr. Egas-Bejar had been on the medical staff at NCH North Naples Hospital for seven years. Condolences go to her husband, Jose Ruben Valle, MD, NCH pulmonologist, and their three young sons, Ruben, Daniel and Christopher.
Dr. Egas-Bejar had recently been elected by her peers to the Naples Illustrated 2022 list of the magazine’s top doctors. Following his Mass on February 24, 2022, a funeral procession passed by NCH North Naples Hospital to give KIDZ Medical and NCH staff and employees the opportunity to pay their last respects. Staff were encouraged to wear green, the doctor’s favorite color, to honor his memory.
Fond memories and expressions of sympathy for the Valle-Egas family can be shared at www.hodgesfhatnaplesmg.com.
In Dani’s honor, donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (https://www.stjude.org) or the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation (https://cholangiocarcinoma.org/egas/).
