The Exceptional Physician Award was established by an anonymous donor due to their love of healthcare. This individual works closely with Physicians, and felt like we had some of the best physicians on staff at Tift Regional Health Systems. This award is given to a Physician who takes PRIDE, which are Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Excellence in healthcare. Physicians are nominated by the general public, co-workers and patients. This $500 cash award is presented at Tift Regional’s annual employee banquet in October.
