Physician of the Year: Acute Care Surgery

2015 Acute Award Presented to Orange Park Surgeon
EmCare Honors Dr. Alexander Rose with National Recognition

ORLANDO, FLA. (April 7, 2015) – The medical director of surgery at Orange Park Medical Center in Orange Park, Fla., Alexander Rose, M.D., has been honored with the prestigious Acute Award for 2015. The award is presented by EmCare, a leading national provider of physician practice management services, and honors a single surgeon for the award each year.

 “It’s a tremendous honor,” said Dr. Rose of receiving the award. “These recognitions aren’t singular things. My wife, my staff, the administration at Orange Park and the staff at EmCare have been really created an environment where surgeons can thrive.”

“Dr. Rose is a great surgeon and a wonderful leader,” said John Josephs, M.D., CEO of EmCare Acute Care Surgery. “His work with robotic surgery has been innovative, and his collaboration with peers in helping to increase robotic surgery at his hospital has really been pioneering.”

Dr. Rose has been very involved in training and growing the types of robotic surgeries available at Orange Park Medical Center. The hospital’s administration praises his surgical skills, leadership skills and patient care. The hospital’s CEO, Chad Patrick, even drove from Charleston, S.C. to Orange Park while suffering from appendicitis so that Dr. Rose could personally perform the appendectomy.

Dr. Rose was honored with the Acute Award during EmCare’s annual Leadership Conference. The 2015 convention was held at the Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Fla. While the Acute Award recognizes a single surgeon from across the United States, EmCare also annually honors individuals from emergency medicine, hospital medicine and anesthesiology as its Physicians of the Year
