OBHG congratulates our Clinical Leadership Award winners

Four exceptional OBHG Site Director honorees are selected for OBHG’S Clinical Leadership Awards each year. These awards are presented at our annual National Clinical Leadership Meeting. One Site Director from each of our four regional teams is selected based on a combination of measurable program elements and intangible leadership qualities. This year, we introduced a fifth clinical award, our Living the Values award. This award recognizes a clinician closely aligned with OBHG’s core values.

Congratulations to the winners of our clinical leadership awards:

Dr. Kaneez Ali, OBHG Site Director, Ascension St. Joseph campus – 2022 Clinical Leadership Award

Dr. Curtis Boyd, OBHG Site Director, Willow Creek Women’s Hospital – 2022 Clinical Leadership Award

Dr. Susan Passarella, OBHG Site Director, Ocean Medical Center – 2022 Clinical Leadership Award

“These awards are among OBHG’s highest clinical honors,” said Dr. Amy VanBlaricom, OBHG Chief Clinical Officer. “I am so proud of each of our award winners. They excel at managing their teams, meeting program objectives, building strong relationships within the hospital, ensuring outstanding clinical quality and representing OBHG’s core values. Their efforts ensure our clinicians are enhancing women’s healthcare and positively impacting the lives of more pregnant moms and babies.”
