Mark Goldstein, M.D., emergency medicine, was selected as Carroll Hospital Center's July Physician of the Month. A physician affiliated with Carroll Hospital Center for one year, Dr. Goldstein was nominated for his extraordinary care of a patient in the emergency department and his outstanding efforts in ensuring that the patient's best interests would be met once discharged from the hospital.
"Dr. Goldstein is an outstanding physician who consistently puts the needs of his patients first. He genuinely cares about the best interests of his patients while inside the emergency department and when discharged," Leslie Simmons, R.N., F.A.C.H.E., president, said.
Each month, Carroll Hospital Center recognizes the extraordinary patient care achievements of physicians, as well as physician assistants, nurse practitioners and certified nurse anesthetists, with a program called Physician WOW Service Awards. From those who are nominated to receive Physician WOW Service Awards each month, one Physician of the Month is chosen. And, from a year's worth of Physician of the Month winners, one Physician of the Year is selected.
Community members and hospital associates are encouraged to nominate a medical professional who has demonstrated a special dedication and devotion to patients in a variety of ways.
