Nephrologist at Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Receives National Award
Chicago, Ill. – April 16, 2014 – Ogb Aneziokoro, MD, nephrologist, Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center (PSMEMC), recently received a national award at the Davita Physician Leadership Meeting in San Diego.
Dr. Aneziokoro, who joined PSMEMC two years ago, was presented with the “Core Value – Service Excellence Award” for his work as medical director at three Chicago area dialysis centers. The achievement recognized patient satisfaction, growth of the facility, leadership and quality patient care.
“I was overwhelmed – it was an honor to receive the Service Excellence Award, which has opened doors for me and allowed me to meet physicians and leaders in the industry,” Dr. Aneziokoro said. The nephrologist didn’t know about the award ahead of time, and almost skipped the last session to visit family in the area. A Davita executive convinced him to stay for the session.
Davita, which operates U.S. dialysis facilities, presented seven awards to dialysis center medical directors and one team award at the conference, which had more than 1,000 attendees. PSMEMC does not operate a dialysis center on its campus. Patients are referred to area facilities.
A South Loop resident, Dr. Aneziokoro has an office at the Presence Saint Elizabeth Campus in Chicago.
