Every year, the American College of Physicians (ACP) Maryland Chapter honors hospitalists who have made notable contributions to the field, whether through exceptional clinical skills, improved workflow, leadership and quality improvement in the areas of hospitalist medicine. We are thrilled to announce that on February 2, 2018, ACP’s Maryland Chapter presented Adfinitas Health Vice President & Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ledys Dimarsico, with their Outstanding Hospitalist Award for her contributions and dedication to hospital medicine.
The Outstanding Hospitalist Award was developed in 2009 to honor the contributions made by a hospitalist member of the Maryland Chapter. It is to recognize the significant achievements and contributions in the area of hospitalist medicine by a member of the ACP, and his or her skills and passion for serving as a role model for this specialty and the our general medical community here in Maryland. As an esteemed member of the leadership team, Dr. DiMarsico continuously demonstrates the mission, vision and values of Adfinitas. She has made significant contributions to advance our leading-edge quality programs as well as our unique training and onboarding program for nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Her work is a key part of how we work to continuously improve and innovate as we focus on driving better outcomes for our partners and patients.
Dr. DiMarsico previously served as the director of quality for the Adfinitas Health. Her prior experience included serving as the Director of Academic Hospitalists at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and as a clinical instructor at Johns Hopkins University College of Medicine. Ledys has over 10 years’ experience as a hospitalist medical director and was the medical director of the Intermediate Care Unit, where she assisted in developing order sets and protocols, organized initiatives for HCAHPS and hospital acquired conditions, and conducted risk management reviews.
Please join us in celebrating and congratulating Dr. DiMarsico for this well-deserved recognition!
