These awards recognize the excellence of individuals who are dedicated to promoting healing, extending life, and alleviating pain and suffering, all the while keeping families together and providing the greatest degree of freedom, independence, and dignity possible. AHHC’s Physician of the Year is Dr. Steve Daub, Medical Doctor at Urgent Medical & Family Care http://urgentmed.com/ and he was nominated by Tina Glenn with http://www.HearthsideHomeCare.com.
"These are the true heroes in home care, home health and hospice, who serve on the front line every day, encountering numerous challenges often with a smile on their face and a fierce determination to persevere on behalf of their patients," says Tim Rogers, President & CEO of AHHC. http://www.homeandhospicecare.org/AHHC2016Awards.pdf. The Awards were presented by AHHC’s President and CEO, Tim Rogers.
Tina says that during Hearthside’s 17 years of history, Dr. Daub has been the primary care doctor for dozens of our patients and clients, many of whom have had medically complex cases. Over the years he has made himself available at any hour to consult with and discuss difficult situations with patients. He has helped our team come up with solutions for what, at the time, seemed to be impossible care plan needs. On many occasions, he has worked with our registered nurses regarding issues of polypharmacy and frequency/dosage concerns, for better/healthier outcomes. He is always open to suggestions and ideas from nurses regarding our patients/clients.
Dr. Daub advocates for in-home care by doing everything possible to keep patients and clients in the home as long as possible and back into the home following hospitalization or nursing home rehab stays. He is the primary care doctor for patients of numerous other home care agencies in town, who also share the same wonderful experiences with him, and he is affiliated with 8 area hospitals in the region.
On a regular basis, using his own vacation time, he goes 3 to 4 times a year to medically underserved regions, such as in Africa and Sri Lanka, volunteering his time and expertise.
Dr. Daub routinely coaches clients and their families to remain at home as long as possible and has talked more than one of Hearthside’s clients "off of the ledge,” who have been depressed. It should be no surprise, then, that he has been the recipient of the Compassionate Doctor Recognition in 2010, and 2014. He has also received the Patients' Choice Award in 2010-2011, and 2014-2015, an honor given for the difference a particular physician has made in the lives of his/her patients.
We are honored to recognize Dr. Daub for his achievements and contributions to home care.
