After receiving the Redmond Frist Humanitarian Physician Award earlier this year, Dr. Ryland Scott, Harbin Clinic General Surgery, was honored as the HCA Healthcare national recipient of the Frist Humanitarian Physician Award during the HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction ceremony in Nashville on Friday. The award includes a $10,000 donation to the charity of the physician’s choice.

The Frist Humanitarian Awards are given annually in recognition of the humanitarian spirit and philanthropic work of the late Dr. Thomas Frist, Sr., co-founder of HCA Healthcare.  The HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction are the highest honors bestowed upon employees, physicians, and volunteers. HCA Healthcare is the parent company of Redmond Regional Medical Center.

“I am honored to be recognized among a group of outstanding healthcare professionals that share HCA’s commitment to the care and improvement of human life. I am especially grateful for the $10,000 of donations being made to our local community by the HCA Foundation,” says Dr. Scott.

The $10,000 donation will be split between two local organizations, Young Life and Restoration Rome.

J. Ryland Scott, MD, FACS, is a general surgery and advanced laparoscopy physician who has worked at Redmond Regional Medical Center in Rome, Georgia for 16 years. He led the development of Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) for colorectal surgeries in 2014, which resulted in reduced length of stay and improved recovery times for patients. After learning that his home county in the state of Georgia had a high number of children in need of foster homes, Dr. Scott and his family decided to help. In addition to raising their biological triplets, the Scotts have fostered eight children. He is also involved in youth ministry and, along with his wife, was a founding chair of the Young Life program, a faith-based camp for teenagers, in Rome, Georgia.

“It is a privilege to know and work alongside Dr. Ryland Scott,” said John Quinlivan, Chief Executive Officer at Redmond Regional Medical Center. “Dr. Scott sets an example for caring and compassion with his patients and for those in our community. He truly exemplifies our mission statement: ‘Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.’ We are thrilled that he has been chosen as the national Frist Humanitarian – Physician Award recipient.”
