"...the greatest part of the Physicians of Excellence honor is that it... promotes the best quality care for our patients.”
ORANGE, Calif. (PRWEB) February 07, 2017
Award-winning medical group Allied Anesthesia announced today that Orange County Medical Association (OCMA) chose seven of the group’s anesthesiologists as 2017 Physicians of Excellence. The Physicians of Excellence program is a collaborative effort between OCMA, the Orange County Register and COAST Magazine. The list of doctors appears each January in COAST’s Top Docs feature issue, which has historically been the publication’s highest-selling issue. Last month’s issue is in print and online, and the complete list of doctors is on the Orange County Register’s searchable Physicians of Excellence database.
The OCMA, in partnership with COAST and the Orange County Register, manage the Physicians of Excellence program, which recognizes doctors who have demonstrated leadership in medicine through research and education, and who are have consistently delivered high quality care to patients. The three entities honored more than 400 local physicians at an awards event earlier this year.

Dr. Jack Canton – Medical director of anesthesia at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange and at Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC); practicing at St. Joseph Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Orange County and Hoag Orthopedic Institute in Irvine

Canton said of the honor, “We’ve had many of our physicians named to the list every year since Allied Anesthesia formed, and every year, this honor continues to remind us how important the physicians’ roles as leader, collaborator, researcher, educator and community member are. We couldn’t be prouder that, again, several of our doctors are being recognized for their excellent performance in these areas of practice. But the greatest part of the Physicians of Excellence honor is that it supports a culture of excellence in the Southern California medical community—it promotes the best quality care for our patients.”
