2016 winners announced across the health system
Johns Hopkins Medicine hosted its second annual awards program, the Johns Hopkins Medicine Clinical Awards for Physicians and Care Teams, honoring 42 physicians and care teams who embody the best in clinical excellence. The program was launched by the Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians, and awards were open to providers who practice within Johns Hopkins Medicine, including Johns Hopkins Community Physicians locations.
“These awards are designed to celebrate those standout caregivers who consistently provide the highest level of care to our patients,” says Paul B. Rothman, M.D., dean of the medical faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine. “This year’s recipients exemplify the term ‘master clinician,’ and we are deeply grateful for their efforts and their example.”
The recipients, who were nominated by their colleagues, were honored for their commitment to the mission of Johns Hopkins Medicine and their consistent dedication to providing excellent patient care.
Honorees were presented with a gold pin and a framed medal by Rothman; William Baumgartner, M.D., senior vice president of the Office of Johns Hopkins Physicians; and Ronald R. Peterson, president of the Johns Hopkins Health System and executive vice president of Johns Hopkins Medicine, at a recent ceremony.
