Joshua Kilgore, MD receives Medical Staff Teamwork Leadership and Caring Award
The UWMC Provider Recognition Committee commends and congratulates Josh Kilgore, MD for being selected as a recipient of the April Medical Staff TLC Award.
Dr. Klgore was nominated by a colleague who stated:
"Dr. Josh Kilgore, an OB-GYN resident, has demonstrated consistent, outstanding patient care and clinical performance since entering his residency here at the UW even during the most dificult and challenging circumstances.
Recently he cared for a young woman who experienced an unexpected, premature delivery at home during the middle of the night. Neither the patient, nor her family had realized she was pregnant. Medical challenges encountered in the ER were compounded by the patient's and her extended family members' emotional states.
Dr. Kilgore heard about the patient in the ER. He offered his assistance before an official consultation was requested. Working with the team of providers in the ER, Josh delivered his obstetric and gynecologic expertise and care with sensitivity, compassion, and respect for the parent's religious and cultural beliefs and practices and helped with the eventual decision to take the patient to the OR."
This is one of numerous comments by patients and staff about Josh's kindness, professionalism, and dedication to the best possible care for women. He is an outstanding example of dedication to excellence. UWMC is proud to have him as member of the Medicine residency program and a member of our patient care team.
