NYC Health + Hospitals Honors 25 Outstanding Physicians at Annual “Doctors’ Day” Celebration

Jun 01, 2017

New York, NY

In honor of Doctors’ Day, NYC Health + Hospitals recognized 25 physicians for excellence and their ongoing commitment to patient care. The annual celebration honors outstanding physicians from across the health system who have distinguished themselves as leaders amongst their peers.
Physicians from the health system’s hospitals and community health centers, as well as its MetroPlusHealth Health Plan, were recognized for their commitment to providing the highest quality health care to New Yorkers. Reflecting a range of specialties and years of service, the award-winning physicians were drawn from NYC Health + Hospitals’ multi-ethnic and multi-cultural workforce, showcasing the health system’s strength in providing culturally competent care to all, without exception.
“Our physicians are at the core of NYC Health + Hospitals’ deep community roots and of our promise to deliver safe, high-quality, culturally responsive care,” said Stanley Brezenoff, interim president and chief executive officer of NYC Health + Hospitals.
“Today’s honorees have chosen to spend their professional lives caring for the most vulnerable among us. They have applied themselves to advance the public health system’s essential mission of providing care for all who seek it and to help every New Yorker live his or her healthiest life,” said Machelle Allen, MD, chief medical officer of NYC Health + Hospitals.
“NYC Health + Hospitals and all of the doctors and nurses who work there do so much for New York City,” said Council Member Andrew Cohen. “For this Doctor’s Day Celebration, I thank the doctors all over the city who have dedicated their lives to helping save others.”
