Honoring Local Physicians
January 13, 2010
Nominations are currently being accepted for the third annual KishHealth System Acclaimed Physician Awards. The health system invites the community to nominate distinguished physicians for their excellence. The physician awards are a way to recognize members of the Kish Hospital and Valley West Hospital medical staffs who exemplify outstanding service to patients, staff, and the community.
Nominations for the Outstanding Service to Patients and Humanitarian/Community Service categories are open to submissions from community members, patients, and families. The nomination form and applicable information is available at www.kishhospital.org and www.valleywest.org. Nominations must be submitted to the Medical Staff Office at Kish Hospital no later than Feb. 15.
The awards will be presented at the upcoming annual physician recognition event in April at the Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center, Northern Illinois University.
The 2009 recipients were Dr. John Kostrey, pediatrician, for Humanitarian Community Service and Dr. S.W. Chang, pulmonologist for Promotion of Quality Care, from Kishwaukee Community Hospital; and Dr. David Faulk, gastroenterologist, for Outstanding Service to Patients from Valley West Community Hospital.Share |
