Nominations Now Being Accepted for The Little Company of Mary Outstanding Physician Award for 2020

The Little Company of Mary Outstanding Physician Award is presented annually to the physician who best exemplifies the Christian values of Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center through his or her work and lifestyle. Any physician who has been an active member of the Medical Staff for at least one year is eligible.

Any community member, employee, or member of the medical staff, except for members of the Mission Committee and Selection Team, may fill out this nomination form and submit to the Medical Staff Coordinator by the end of January. Each individual may submit only one nomination per year.

In support and recognition of exceptional and exemplary devotion to continuing Christ’s healing mission, Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center began presenting the LCM Outstanding Physician Award to a deserving physician in 2013. This award is named after the Little Company of Mary Sister - USA, the sponsors of Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. Last year’s recipient was Mary Burgeson, MD.

The award is based on outstanding job performance reflecting Memorial Hospital’s Mission Statement and the Core Values of Respect for Human Dignity, Compassionate Caring, Stewardship, Quality, and Justice. To be accepted as a nominee, a physician must be classified as a member of the hospital’s Active Medical Staff for a minimum of 12 months and be in good standing with the Medical Staff.

The nomination process begins with an individual completing and submitting a nomination form to Michele Rose, Memorial Hospital’s Medical Staff Coordinator, by January 31, 2020. All nominations will be reviewed by the hospital’s Mission Committee, with the top six nominees then forwarded for review by a selection committee consisting of Medical Staff officers, the Executive Director of Mission Integration, and the Vice President of Patient Services/Chief Nursing Officer of Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. The LCM Outstanding Physician Award will be presented by the Medical Staff President during the hospital’s Medical Staff Appreciation Banquet.
