PAs Recognized for Outstanding Work
BWH held its first ever Physician Assistant Recognition Dinner in early October
to honor the efforts of the 75 outstanding physician assistants (PAs) as part
of a National PA Recognition Day.
“This wonderful recognition shows the hospital cares about and appreciates
their physician assistants,” said Nicole Koobatian, director of physician
assistant services and PA in Vascular Surgery, who explained that the number of
PAs at BWH is rapidly increasing as the position plays a critical role in supporting
the medical team with efficient and effective patient care.
“Physician assistants are an integral component of the health care team
at BWH, and this event provides an opportunity for us to recognize their critical
contributions to our patients and staff,” said Andy Whittemore, MD, chief
medical officer, who spoke at the dinner.
