Dr. Christopher Jillson, emergency medicine, was named Carroll Hospital Center's August Physician of the Month. A physician affiliated with the hospital for 12 years and a two-time recipient of the Physician of the Month Award, Dr. Jillson was nominated for his exceptional care of a patient in the hospital's emergency department.
"Dr. Jillson is a highly skilled professional with an extreme commitment to providing quality care. His compassionate care leaves a lasting impression on all his patients and makes him highly deserving of this award," Dr. Mark Olszyk, vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer at Carroll Hospital Center, 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.
