Given to fewer than 10 providers in Apogee’s 17-year history, the award recognizes Dr. Jahangir’s dedication to patient safety, quality care and leadership during his career. He was selected for the honor from among over 80 program directors and 850 hospitalists from across the country.

“Dr. Jahangir’s willingness to engage in both clinical and administrative tasks makes him a valued colleague and leader for his team,” said Dr. Don Jansen, Vice President of Medical Affairs at Elkhart General. “He is thoughtful and analytical in problem solving, working always for exceptional patient outcomes, methods for improvement and collegial education. Given the central role of hospitalist care, his leadership and demeanor are greatly respected by all here at EGH.”
