Anesthesiologist Kiran Kuna, M.D., was selected as Carroll Hospital Center's February Physician of the Month. A physician affiliated with Carroll Hospital Center for seven years, Dr. Kuna was nominated for going above and beyond his duties to care for a patient in the hospital's Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU).
"Dr. Kuna consistently exemplifies our SPIRIT values," Mark Olszyk, M.D., Carroll Hospital Center's vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer, said. "His dedication to ensuring patients receive the highest quality care is admirable and makes him an outstanding physician truly deserving of this award."
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.
