New Diamond Doc Award recognizes exceptional patient care

June 11, 2021

On Friday, June 11, chief administrator Brad Simmons and chief medical officer Doug Kirk, presented 35 UC Davis Health physicians with the Diamond Doc Award. The new award recognizes the voice of our patients. It celebrates physicians who demonstrated careful listening, clear explanations, and respectful partnerships and who received the 90th percentile or higher in the hospital consumer assessment of health care providers (HCAHP) survey for the second quarter of the fiscal year 2021.

“We are always looking for new and exciting ways to recognize the excellent care our doctors provide our patients,” Kirk said. “This award is important because it comes from our patients’ experiences. Thank you for ensuring that it is an exceptional experience.”  

Congratulations to our UC Davis Health Diamond Docs!
