The inaugural Mercy Clinic Provider Awards honored caregivers from their East Region. Jad Khoury, MD, ID Fellow 2003, was awarded Physician of the year as well as the Regional Physician of the Year.
After a harrowing two years in a pandemic, Mercy Clinic took time to recognize the tremendous work and flexibility of its doctors and advanced practitioners. Mercy Clinic leaders asked caregivers to nominate those they feel deserve extra acknowledgement for its inaugural awards program.
“Our providers, nearly 1,800 in the East Communities, come to work day and night to share their superior clinical knowledge and compassion toward patients and families as they deliver personalized health care,” said Andy Runge, Mercy Clinic chief operating officer in Mercy’s eastern Missouri region.
Mercy Clinic in the eastern Missouri region is broken down into three divisions – Four Rivers, which includes Washington and the surround areas; South, which includes southern St. Louis County, Jefferson County and surrounding areas; and St. Louis, which includes St. Louis and St. Charles counties.
The St. Louis division winner was Dr. Jad Khoury. His nomination read, “Jad Khoury has been a rock for our ministry to lean on during the pandemic. Frequently the highlight of all-provider meetings, his regular guidance was a voice of reassurance and knowledge during our most challenging hours. Jad is always well-prepared and well-versed in the latest infectious disease challenges. Dr. Khoury’s insight has been sought by so many and despite his long work hours, he continues to say “yes” to helping his colleagues and patients. Our ministry and community are blessed by the service, dedication and friendship of Jad Khoury.”
Dr. Jad Khoury was named Regional Physician of the Year.
