EvergreenHealth Physicians Honored as Seattle Met “Top Doctors 2013″

July 10, 2013

KIRKLAND, Wash., July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Seattle Met magazine recently named 89 providers and nurses within the EvergreenHealth network to the publication’s comprehensive “Top Doctors 2013″ list that honors the top-performing medical practitioners in the Puget Sound region.

Each year, Seattle Met publishes the results of its annual survey, which accepts nominations from 25,000 medical professionals across the region, and highlights the top 12 percent of doctors and nurses within a range of fields and specialties.

“We are proud of our providers, nurses, staff and volunteers who commit themselves to providing the highest level of care and service to our patients and their families. Today, I’m honored to recognize many of our doctors and nurses who were recognized by their peers as exceptional providers, and chosen by Seattle Met as this year’s ‘Top Doctors,’” said Bob Malte, CEO of EvergreenHealth.

To determine the finalists, Seattle Met assembles an independent, anonymous panel of doctors and nurse practitioners from the region’s hospitals, clinics and private practices to choose the final list of Top Doctors based on peer nominations, education, awards, fellowships, hospital privileges, disciplinary history and peer endorsements.
