Ralph Yates, MD – Excellence Above and Beyond
“Everyone is familiar with the compassion Ralph Yates has shown for fellow physicians ever since taking over the CMO position,” wrote Nikhil Batra, MD, in nominating Ralph for the Excellence Above and Beyond star. “His work with focus groups to address physician burnout is testament to that. I had a chance to witness his compassionate side firsthand recently. I met with him regarding a complicated physician credentialing issue in my section, and his handling of the situation left an impression on me. He showed utmost compassion for the physician involved and made sure the physician was treated fairly. As the physician representative on the executive team, Dr. Yates displays organizational empathy at its best and makes sure there are no disruptions in patient care."
