Two outstanding OBHG employees win internal “You Delivered!” award for Q2 2017

By OBHG Marketing on September 29th, 2017

Each quarter, Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) employees nominate teammates who have gone above and beyond to represent OBHG's core values. OBHG's leadership team chooses one clinician and one support staff member to receive the You Delivered! award for their outstanding performance. For quarter two of 2017, OBHG recognized Dr. Denise Sutler, OB hospitalist in our Cypress Fairbanks Hospital program in Houston, Texas, and Angie Holcombe-Tyrrell from our Development & Support team in Greenville, SC.

In Dr. Sutler's nomination, Dr. Theresa Castillo wrote: 

"Dr. Sutler had an incredible save a few months ago. She responded to a patient who was having a uterine rupture. This patient had recently arrived to Labor and Delivery. She had been counseled by her primary OB about risks of a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) and wanted to try because her sister had recently had a successful VBAC. She was moved to a labor room and shortly after that the nurse reported the patient was having an increase in vaginal bleeding and pain.

Dr. Sutler arrived quickly to evaluate the patient and noticed that there was a significant amount of bleeding. When she went to check the patient she could not feel a presenting part. She quickly called for an emergency cesarean section. The patient was placed under general anesthesia and the baby was delivered within a few minutes. When Dr. Sutler got into the abdomen the baby was floating outside of the uterus and the placenta was still attached. The primary OB arrived and the team was able to save the patient and her uterus. Immediately after delivery the baby had Apgar scores of eight and nine. If Dr. Sutler had not been there, this positive outcome might have not been possible.

Dr. Sutler is a great team player. She always goes the extra mile to help out the staff, and in the short time that she has been at Cypress Fairbanks she has earned the respect and appreciation of all the staff and administration. I truly believe she deserves to be recognized for her commitment to patient care and for truly delivering excellence."

OBHG's HR team nominated Angie Holcombe-Tyrrell, and Human Resources Business Partner Jessie Simpson wrote:

"During the second quarter, Human Resources went through transition with some of our systems and team members. Angie has been leading our ADP Optimization project and essentially stepped in to fill a leadership role for our department to help us solve critical outstanding issues and implement processes to assist with day-to-day tasks. This is completely above and beyond her duties as the Manager of Application Development in IT. When ADP issues arose that created roadblocks, Angie was in our office problem solving within minutes."
