Mark Lieser, M.D., Honored as 2017 Acute Surgery Physician of the Year

Mark Lieser, M.D., the medical director for Medical Center Hospital in Odessa, Texas, received Envision Physician Services’ 2017 Acute Surgery Physician of the Year award.

“It is an incredible honor to be recognized by my colleagues – all of whom I admire for their clinical expertise and commitment to our patients,” said Lieser, a 6-year Envision Physician Services-affiliated physician. “Through our ongoing support for one another and continued collaboration, we are able to ensure patients receive the best and most appropriate care and have a positive experience.”

“With his leadership, we quickly achieved Level II trauma status, and look forward to continued success as a high-performing regional trauma center,” said Bill Webster, chief executive officer for Medical Center Health System.

Lieser has worked with colleagues to establish and implement quality care practices for patients with critical injuries, orthopedic injuries and those requiring massive transfusion. Lieser, who has been described as a leader by diligence and sacrifice, is well-respected for his exceptional clinical performance, foresight, leadership and dedication to enhancing the delivery of care in the acute surgery setting. Colleagues say he is a strong and invaluable mentor who fosters a collaborative work environment.

“At the foundation of every good trauma program, is a cornerstone trauma medical director – frequently referred to as 'the glue that holds the program together,'” said Jonathan Dayton, chief operating officer of the surgical services division at Envision Physician Services. “Dr. Lieser's leadership surpasses the glue. He has an uncanny ability and passion for organizing diverse clinicians, resources and program objectives, resulting in a paramount patient experience.”

Lieser was presented with the award during the Envision Physician Service 2017 Annual Leadership Conference held at the Wynn in Las Vegas April 18-20. In addition to honoring the year’s top surgeon, Envision Physician Services recognizes leading physicians in emergency medicine, hospital medicine and radiology.
