Paul Kleinow, M.D., named October Physician of the Month at Carroll Hospital

Paul Kleinow, M.D., critical care medicine, was chosen as Carroll Hospital’s October Physician of the Month. Affiliated with the hospital for two years, Dr. Kleinow was recognized for his exceptional care of a seriously ill patient as well as his compassion toward the patient’s family.

“Dr. Kleinow’s clinical expertise is commendable but, in this case, it was his extraordinary compassion that resonated with us all. He went over and above to educate this patient’s family who was struggling to understand and accept the severity of their loved one’s illness,” 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.
