Dr. Seth Brown, medical director of the emergency department at Niswonger Children’s Hospital, was one of 11 medical leaders from around the nation recognized for demonstrating excellence in his field during SCP Health’s annual Medical Leadership Conference in Phoenix.
A native of Mountain City, Tennessee, Brown has worked as a pediatric emergency physician at Niswonger Children’s Hospital since August 2014. He also serves as an assistant clinical professor for East Tennessee State University’s Department of Pediatrics, a position he has held since 2015.
“I’m incredibly thankful to be recognized for the work we do each day at Niswonger Children’s Hospital. I know my name is on the award, but it’s really a team effort. There are so many doctors, nurses and team members who collaborate and contribute to the well being of these children,” Brown said.
“It’s not always easy in the pediatric emergency room, but we do all we can to provide the best possible care for the children and families we serve. It’s such an honor and a blessing to be recognized for doing what I love to do.”
Lisa Carter, chief executive officer of Niswonger Children’s Hospital, commended Brown’s dedication to his work and his ability to lead the pediatric emergency room.
“I couldn’t think of an individual more deserving of this award than Dr. Brown. It reflects his commitment to quality care and excellent patient outcomes. We’re so lucky to have leaders like Dr. Brown serve our region in such an important capacity,” Carter said.
Brown was nominated for the award by key leaders within his division of SCP, a clinical practice management company based in Lafayette, Louisiana, with a portfolio of more than 8 million patients and 7,500 providers in 30 states and 400 healthcare facilities.
The winners were chosen for their consistent demonstration of superior leadership, their performance in their role and proven results at their hospital facility.
