Each month, Carroll Hospital recognizes the extraordinary patient care achievements of physicians, as well as physician assistants, nurse practitioners and certified nurse anesthetists, with a program called Practitioner/Physician WOW Service Awards. From those who are nominated each month, one Physician or Provider of the Month is chosen.
