Bluewater Health and the Bluewater Health Foundation have singled out four physicians for their contributions to the Sarnia-Lambton community.
The doctors demonstrate the “rich involvement . . . in delivering quality care” to patients, said Mike Lapaine, Bluewater Health CEO. “Their commitment to patients and families makes our mission of creating exemplary healthcare experiences with patients and family every time, a reality.”
Those honoured included:
—Dr. Robert Hislop, an emergency physician, as Outstanding Physician of the Year. Dr. Hislop is seen as someone who uses excellent clinical judgment to reduce the use of unnecessary tests, a life-long learner and a physician who is well-respected by his colleagues. He also serves as a Coroner, an Adjunct Professor at Western University, where he teaches medical students, and as a physician representative on the Quality Committee of the Bluewater Health board of directors.
—Dr. Michel Haddad, an intensivist and medical director of Critical Care, as recipient of the Outstanding Contribution to the Hospital Award. Dr. Haddad has also served as the Interim Medical Director for Surgery and was instrumental in organizing hospital-wide Morbidity Mortality Rounds to encourage physicians and staff to learn from complex cases that involve many specialities.
—Dr. Serguei Peregoudov, anesthetist, as recipient of the Peer Recognition Award. He was recognized as a consummate gentleman who practices both the art and science of anesthesia at the highest level.
—Dr. Glenn Maddison as recipient of the Culture of Philanthropy Award. Dr. Maddison was an instrumental member of the community-based committee that planned the successful Bluewater International Granfondo, which saw 500 riders take part in a fundraiser that raised $30,000 to support palliative care at Bluewater Health and St. Joseph’s Hospice.
