Harrington HealthCare System recently held its annual Physician Recognition Evening at the Collection at Wight Barn in Sturbridge where Harrington President and CEO Ed Moore welcomed the group and thanked them for their service, and Medical Staff President Dr. Frank Powers presented the 2016 TLC Award to Issam Oneyssi, M.D., FACP, a Harrington hospitalist since 2009.

Nominations for this prestigious award were submitted by patients, employees, volunteers, physicians and community members. They were asked to write why they felt their candidate upholds the principles of Quality, Safety, Integrity, Leadership and Total Local Care while exhibiting characteristics of Reliability, Compassion, Availability, Cooperation and Flexibility.

Dr. Oneyssi was cited by numerous nominators, some of whom said, “He truly cares about the patients and not because it is his job but because he truly cares and takes pride in exceptional patient care…he provides great leadership to our healthcare team here at Harrington through his consistently safe practice, integrity, availability and reliability…I feel very privileged to know him and I'm also very happy to know that our patients get to experience some of that sunshine on their cloudy days…he is an excellent diagnostician. If I were sick, I would want him to care for me…Dr. Oneyssi gives his all to every patient he treats. He is truly kind and compassionate to his patients and is always approachable to fellow staff.”

The TLC Award recipient was selected by a committee consisting of Dr. Arthur Russo, Dr. Frank Powers, Ed Moore, and past winners; Dr. Paul Santolucito (2011), Dr. Paul Harrington (2012), Dr. John Tumolo (2013), Dr. Tina Render (2014), and Dr. Talal Bou-Harb (2015).
