At its fifth annual Doctor’s Day awards ceremony, Methodist Sugar Land Hospital literally rolled out the red carpet for their physicians including seven leading physicians, nominated and voted on by over 650 hospital employees.
Physicians in leading roles for 2011 were announced in seven categories: Female Physician of Excellence, Hospitalist, Dr. Swati Joglekar; Male Physician of Excellence, Hospitalist, Dr. Samir Joglekar; Best Team Player, Emergency Medicine, Dr. Scott Rivenes; Most Respectful, Cardiac Electrophysiologist, Dr. Gregory Pepper; Most Supportive, Pulmonologist, Dr. Bhadresh Shah; Best Bedside Manner, OB/GYN, Dr. Carlos Herrera; and Most Technologically Innovative, Podiatrist, Dr. Nicholas Desai.
“Our physicians bring a great deal of knowledge, skill and compassion to the residents in the Fort Bend community,” said Chris Siebenaler, CEO of Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. “These awards are just one way for us to recognize the incredible work they do.”
The seven physicians were recognized at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s Doctor’s Day celebration and medical staff meeting. At the Oscars-style event in appreciation of physicians, secret envelopes revealed the winners. The physician winners then gave a small speech to recognize and thank those in attendance.
