The award winner is also one who leads the health care team in delivering high quality, safe, personalized patient care.
“This award enables our nursing staff to recognize a physician who displays collaboration with our staff in the delivery of personalized, excellent care,” said Chilton Hospital Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer Joanne Reich, DNPc, RN, MA, NEA-BC. Our physicians are essential to the delivery of quality care, every day.”
A nurse at Chilton’s “4 West” medical/surgical/oncology unit wrote the following words of praise about Dr. Audia on his nomination form: “Dr. Audia is always calm, composed and is kind to his patients and nurses. When a call is placed to his office, he always returns the call promptly and is never too rushed or makes you feel that you have to hurry due to impatience. He is always consistent and thorough.”
