Congratulations to 77 faculty physicians and advance care providers from the department of medicine who received the 2019 UNC Health Care and UNC Faculty Physicians Award for Carolina Care Excellence.

Every year, UNC Health Care administers the CG-CAHPS (Clinician and Group Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) survey to solicit feedback from patients. The survey asks patients if they would recommend their provider’s office to their friends and family. Over the past year, for 189 UNC Health Care providers, more than 95 percent of their patients responded “Yes, definitely!,” which places these providers in the top quartile nationally. The 2019 UNC Health Care and UNC Faculty Physicians Award for Carolina Care Excellence is awarded in recognition of this achievement.


From the UNC Department of Medicine, we celebrate the following physicians and advanced practice providers for helping to create exceptional experiences for patients, delivering Carolina Care with empathy and expertise.
