SMH Honors Physicians on Frontlines of COVID Pandemic

Business

Sarasota Memorial this week honored its hospital epidemiologist and a team of physicians leading the fight against COVID-19 in the Suncoast region. At the SMH annual medical staff meeting on Tuesday, Chief of Staff Alissa Shulman, MD, presented the health system’s 2020 Physician of the Year Award to physicians leaders representing the extraordinary work of the medical staff to safeguard patients, hospital staff and the community this year. Those included Medical Director of SMH Infection Prevention & Control Manuel Gordillo, MD; SMH Chief Medical Officer James Fiorica, MD; past chief of staff and critical care pulmonologist Joseph Seaman, MD; and Medical Director of Clinical Research Kirk Voelker, MD. “These physician leaders did not do this alone. It took leadership, collaboration and support from teams of physicians they represent who together managed every challenge and complexity the pandemic threw our way,” Dr. Shulman said. “I could stand here all day naming physicians who stepped up to the plate for our hospital, our patients and our community… and I would still have more names I wanted to get to.”
