Dr. Hamid Feiz, Program Director of Aventura Hospital’s Internal Medicine Residency Program and Chief of the Division of Hospital Medicine, has earned a “Top Doc” designation featured in the American College of Physicians (ACP) 2015 “Top Hospitalists” issue.
ACP Hospitalist provides news and information for internists and reports on topics relating to ACP – the largest medical-specialty organization in the U.S. focused on enhancing the quality and effectiveness of healthcare.
One of only ten “Top Docs” recognized, Feiz was nominated by his Aventura Hospital colleagues and chosen by ACP Hospitalist’s editorial board for accomplishments in areas such as patient care, quality improvement and medical education.
Under Feiz’s leadership, Aventura Hospital was granted initial full accreditation for its first residency training program in Internal Medicine by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Feiz’s “Top Doc” profile highlights his integral role in helping Aventura Hospital’s Internal Medicine Residency Program as well as its Hospitalist Program become “top performers.”
After joining the hospital staff in 2012, Feiz set a strategic course to achieve goals including improving length of stay, decreasing costs and time from patient ER arrival to admission. Simultaneously, he helped structure Internal Medicine Program curriculum, recruit faculty and manage the accreditation application process.
In his “Top Doc” profile, Feiz emphasizes, “Being able to help make our residency program successful has been extremely rewarding. The next step is to keep raising the bar on the quality of care, patient satisfaction and scholarly activity at our teaching program.”
Beyond Feiz’s “Top Doc” honor, Aventura Hospital is continuing to introduce great technological advances in cardiac care including the TAVR Program (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement) now making valve replacement possible for patients who may not be candidates for open heart surgery. Next year, the hospital will be breaking ground on a project to double the size of its Emergency Room; and the community is always invited to attend ongoing lecture series focusing on various health topics.
