The most meaningful health care awards are those that come from patients.

ApolloMD congratulates our own Jesse Ellsworth, MD, an emergency medicine physician at our partner Novant Kernersville Medical Center in Kernersville, NC.

He recently received Novant’s Guardian Angel award and pin, a recognition program that enables “patients to say ‘thank you’ to team members who made it easier for patients to focus on what really matters – getting better and staying healthy.”

Pam Dillon, the patient’s mother who nominated Dr. Ellsworth, wrote this in her letter of praise:

“Dr. Ellsworth took the time to listen and discuss her symptoms, run tests and explain everything. His kindness and nonjudgmental attitude were really appreciated.”

According to Novant Health, the patient left the hospital feeling hope that had eluded her during previous medical encounters.

“We Are Healthcare”

May 7-13 is designated as National Hospital Week, powered by 2023’s “We Are Healthcare” theme. It meshes nicely with ApolloMD’s vision: “Health Clinicians. Healthy Communities. Healthy Patients.” National Hospital Week serves as the perfect time to recognize hospitals, health care systems, networks and all professionals who provide care for our community.

Thank you, Dr. Ellsworth, for embracing ApolloMD’s inspiring values and transforming them into personally inspiring, tangible, meaningful patient care.
