Rep. Kristina Roegner presented a proclamation to Akron General Director of Physician Relations Dennis Nordquest, resident of Hudson, on Nov. 22 at Akron General Health & Wellness Center-North in Stow in honor of his being named the 2012-2013 "Outstanding National Host Client" by Practice Management Institute (PMI).
Chosen nationally from among hundreds of PMI hospitals, medical society, physician service group and program host partners, Nordquest was recognized by PMI for his exceptional networking and relationship-building abilities and for his outstanding commitment to Akron General's physician community. Nordquest was the years' stand-out advocate on the importance of accessibility of education to the physician and staff.
"Mr. Nordquest has by example taken the role of program host to the next level. His ability to utilize education as a vehicle for building close bonds between Akron General and its affiliated providers and staff is second to none. It's what other individuals in his role around the country are wanting to achieve," said Michael Moore, director of Outreach, Network and Business Development for PMI.
