Advanced ICU Care, Metroplex Adventist Hospital’s partner in providing high-acuity telemedicine services to its ICU (intensive care unit), announced the selection of Freddie Morales, MD, FCCP of Metroplex Adventist Hospital, as a 2016 I SEE YOU CARE Award winner.
The award recognizes outstanding collaboration between bedside care providers and Advanced ICU Care’s remote critical care teams that is critical to success in caring for patients in the continuous care environment of an ICU. Dr. Morales was one of only eight award recipients across more than 65 hospitals, with recognition given in four categories: hospital, administrator, doctor, and nurse.
“Achieving peak success in almost any meaningful endeavor requires expertise, a willingness to contribute meaningfully to a team, and a commitment to pursuing outcomes of consequence. Achieving peak success in the demanding clinical environment of the ICU requires these attributes in quantity,” said Lou Silverman, CEO of Advanced ICU Care. “We are excited to recognize Dr. Freddie Morales with a 2016 I SEE YOU CARE Award. He exemplifies the commitment to team and purpose in the tele-ICU collaboration that saves lives and improves patient outcomes. We are proud to recognize his leadership and vision in advancing telemedicine. “
“As a recipient of the I SEE YOU CARE Award, Dr. Morales exemplifies what it means to extend the healing ministry of Christ,” said Carlyle Walton, president and CEO of Metroplex Health System. “His level of commitment to his team and his patients is how Metroplex creates better health throughout our community.”
Dr. Morales was recognized in a ceremony at Metroplex Adventist Hospital and was also honored with a donation in his name by Advanced ICU Care to the Metroplex Health System Foundation.
