Top Docs AND Nurse Practioners 2014!!!
Hearty kudos to the Nurse Practitioners who received top awards from Seattle Metropolitan Magazine! A few years ago, Seattle Met broadened their definition of "Top" to include Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants which was a fantastic idea! Each year, Seattle Met invites a anonymous advisory panel of administrators, doctors, NP's and PA's from local hopsitals, clinics, private practices and associations to vet nominations and help authenticate the results. The criteria for selection included a providers years of experience and competency within their speciality, rapport with patients including patient satisfaction and compliance with care recommendations, and ability to work effectively with colleagues across specialites to deliver the best care for patients. The following received TOP NP recognition for 2014:
Shannon Fitzgerald (Seattle Children's/Urgent Care)
Nancy Cicino Lockett (Group Health)
Susie Paeth (Virginia Mason, with speciality in pulmonary)
Happy G. Salinas-Santos (Odessa Brown/Seattle Children's)
Gabrielle D. Seibel (Odessa Brown/Seattle Children's, Sickle Cell)
Johannah Crogan (Seattle Childrens/Emergency Medicine)
Congratulations to everyone! Some of the NP's were listed amongst the Doctors and not in the NP listing...so I hope I didn't miss anyone. Awesome recognition to a great group of people!
