New Hanover Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce that Todd Kornegay, MD, has been named NHRMC’s Physician of Excellence.
Dr. Kornegay, internal medicine specialist NHRMC Medical Group – New Hanover Medical Group and medical director of the NHRMC Employee Health Clinic, was nominated by his coworkers for his unending dedication to his patients and their families.
Patients, who have given him a 5-star rating on nhrmc.org, noted his compassionate bedside manner and how he even incorporates drawing skills to make sure his patients understand their diagnosis without fears or concerns. His team said he has a “heart of gold” and mentioned a time when a patient was nearing the end of life and Dr. Kornegay knelt at the bedside, comforting the patient and family.
“Dr. Kornegay is the best provider I have seen,” said one patient review. “He takes the time to explain things to you in a way that you can understand and you truly feel that he cares about you and your health.”
The NHRMC Employee, Leader and Physician of Excellence program is a way for the organization to acknowledge the outstanding contributions of its staff and physicians. Employees are nominated and selected by their peers for high performance in four key areas: communication, compassion, teamwork and ownership.
