Jessica Hobbs, M.D., named August Physician of the Month at Carroll Hospital

Jessica Hobbs, M.D., anesthesiology, was chosen as Carroll Hospital’s August Physician of the Month. Affiliated with the hospital for six years, Dr. Hobbs was recognized for quickly intervening to ensure a patient with a serious condition was appropriately managed and transferred to a specialty hospital for care.

“Dr. Hobbs is an exceptional physician who consistently provides outstanding care. In this case, her expert knowledge and astute attention to detail were pivotal in identifying a high-risk patient and ensuring they received the appropriate care needed prior to their surgery,” said Mark Olszyk, M.D., vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer at Carroll Hospital.

Each month, Carroll Hospital recognizes the extraordinary patient care achievements of physicians, as well as advanced practice providers with a program called Physician/Provider WOW Service Awards. From those who are nominated to receive these awards each month, one Physician or Provider of the Month is chosen. And, from a year’s worth of Physician or Provider of the Month winners, one Physician of the Year and one Advanced Practice Provider of the Year is selected.

Community members and hospital team members are encouraged to nominate a medical professional who has demonstrated a special dedication and devotion to patients in a variety of ways.
