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.
