Gregory L. Kernisan, M.D. has been recognized for “Providing an Exceptional Experience”

“I would like to recognize you all for coming together as 4 separate entities to provide exception care for a high risk and challenging patient! A particular “shout out” to Rachel and Rob who entered into an unfamiliar environment to set up the scanner and program in order to execute the ordered CT scan. We would have had to travel to CT scan with the patient under anesthesia otherwise. This collaboration afforded for exceptional care while maintaining the safety and well being of the patient and all those involved. Thank you!”

Thomas Mort, MD., has been recognized for “Providing an Exceptional Experience”

“Dr. Mort, MD., has been with Hartford Hospital, Department of Anesthesiology for more than 15 years. One of the respected and senior anesthesiologists of our department. He is our patient safety champion and played key role in developing guidelines for safe airway management not only for anesthesia department but for the whole hospital. He was the founding member of our CESI, which is one of the largest such centers in the country. He is also one of the few anesthesiologists who is well published in our department. Many hospital healthcare providers choose him to be their anesthesiologist for their surgery. He is currently our Assistant Director of our Department. He deserves to be recognized by our Hospital.”
