Dec 19, 2014  Pediatric Urology Team Receives UCM Recognition
Mohan Gundeti, MD, director of pediatric urology, Beverly Dooley, APN, and Nancy Kozlar received an award on Monday, Dec. 9 for patient experience at the quarterly UCMC Forum on Patient Experience.

Chief Operating Officer Jason Keeler presented them with the award after the team frequently scores near or at 100-level perfect scores, as cited by the Patient Experience Department from patients and their families.

Dec 18, 2014  Resident Praised for Calm, Effective Leadership in Trauma
Jessica Kandel, MD, section chief of pediatric surgery, relayed the following praise for a general surgery resident from the pediatric emergency department:

"I wanted to relay commendation for Jen DeFazio from the ED team for her performance on Monday, when she cared for two patients with gunshot wounds. She was specifically praised for her calm and effective leadership in the trauma bay, which led to the rapid transport to the OR of the more unstable child; this child survived what should have been a lethal injury (gunshot wound to the pulmonary hilum). I have no doubt that Jen’s actions were critical to this save."

Dec 18, 2014  Dr. Swati Kulkarni's Research Featured in ACS Surgery News
ACS Surgery News, the official newspaper of the American College of Surgeons, featured a story on Swati Kulkarni, MD, and her breast cancer research in its December 2014 issue.
