FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Westminster, Md. – (February 11, 2013) — Amandeep Singh, M.D., director of the adult hospitalist program, was selected as Carroll Hospital Center’s February Physician of the Month. A physician affiliated with Carroll Hospital Center for four years, Dr. Singh was nominated for his compassionate care and outstanding efforts in coordinating a last visit between a husband and wife — both patients in the hospital — before the husband was transferred to The Dove House for end-of-life care.
“Dr. Singh is a dedicated physician who is always focused on meeting the needs of his patients and family members,” said Leslie Simmons, R.N., B.S.N., M.A., executive vice president and chief operating officer. “In this situation he made an enormous impact on this couple and their family by making a painful situation a little easier to bear.”
Each month, Carroll Hospital Center recognizes the extraordinary patient care achievements of physicians, as well as physician assistants, nurse practitioners and certified nurse anesthetists, with a program called Physician WOW Service Awards. From those who are nominated to receive Physician WOW Service Awards each month, one Physician of the Month is chosen. And, from a year’s worth of Physician of the Month winners, one Physician of the Year is selected.
Community members and hospital associates are encouraged to nominate a medical professional who has demonstrated a special dedication and devotion to patients in a variety of ways.
