Dr. Vincent Rollo
, orthopaedic surgeon, was selected as Carroll Hospital Center's March Physician of the Month. A physician affiliated with the hospital for 16 years, he was nominated by a parent for his exceptional care of her now adult son, more than 15 years after his initial care. When her son was 7 years old, Rollo diagnosed him with a serious childhood condition. And, due to the quick diagnosis and subsequent treatment, the patient was able to perform many activities that his family never thought would be possible through his growing years, and as an adult, the patient remains active.
Each month, the hospital 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 the awards each month, one is chosen. And, from a year's worth of award 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 his/her job in a variety of ways. For information on how to nominate a staff member, contact the human resources department at 410-871-6833.
