In an effort to acknowledge the vital role that the medical staff members play in the success of Columbus Regional Health, a yearly Physician Recognition Award Program was established in 2014. The program recognizes a Physician of the Year in each of three categories - Clinical Care, Teaching and Leadership.
Any medical staff member, patient, family, Board member or Columbus Regional Health employee may nominate a physician. To nominate someone who exemplifies excellence in Clinical Care, Teaching or Leadership.
