OBHG’s You Delivered! peer recognition award recipients

We are proud to announce the winners of our most recent You Delivered! peer recognition awards. The program recognizes and rewards one clinician and one support team member who truly exemplify our core values (Passion for People, Delivering Excellence, Genuine Service, Principled Leadership, and Uncompromised Integrity) each quarter.

Congratulations to Dr. Nicolai Hinds and Kat Davis for being recognized for being exemplary models of living our core values.

Dr. Nicolai Hinds, MetroSouth Medical Center           

Dr. Hinds was nominated for being a “spectacular representation of OBHG.” His nominator recounted a recent experience as “a perfect example of his ability to deliver excellence and lead by example, his dedication to OBHG’s mission, as well as his undeniable passion for people.”

During a recent shift, Dr. Hinds was called to urgently assess a pregnant patient who was near term and experiencing labor pains. He determined she was in labor and her primary OB/GYN was notified. While the patient awaited the arrival of her doctor, Dr. Hinds was called away to assess another patient who was ready to give birth. She was still in her street clothes and there was no time for preparation. Her primary clinician was on the way from an office across the street. Dr. Hinds delivered the second patient’s baby and the primary clinician soon arrived to take over.

When Dr. Hinds returned to check on the first patient, her obstetrician had not yet arrived, and she was also ready to deliver. She gave birth quickly.

Dr. Hinds said he reflected on the morning and realized that he had done two deliveries for community clinicians just 22 minutes apart and barely three hours into his 24-hour shift!  Dr. Hinds recounted, “the second patient who didn’t even have time to get out of her street clothes, was afraid, panicked, and very worried that things were not going at all according to her plans. Once she saw that a doctor was there, she was relieved. After her delivery was over, she said to Dr. Hinds, ‘I am so glad that you made it here for me!’ Dr. Hinds’ response was, ‘I am always here; I am an OB Hospitalist.'”

Kathryn (Kat) Davis, Senior Hospital Operations Analyst

Kat Davis was nominated for “making OBHG better.” Her nominator wrote that Kat is “eager to help and takes time out of her busy day to assist you in any way she can.” She also loves to learn and shares her knowledge with those around her, she fully grasps the way to success is to help other people succeed.

Kat’s nominator says that Kat’s role is dependent on her vast knowledge and capitalizes on her countless talents and experiences. This also puts her in the position to provide critical feedback that others may not want to hear but need to hear. “She stewards this responsibility well; a responsibility many of us would not want, but she does so with such grace and kindness,” stated Kat’s peer.

Please join us in congratulation Dr. Hinds and Kat!
