Darcy Ortiz Wins the 2017 “Convenient Healthcare Excellence Award”


2017 “Convenient Healthcare Excellence Award” WinnerThe 2017 Convenient Healthcare and Pharmacy Collaborative Annual Conference featured a number of RediClinic clinicians, including the winner of the 2017 “Convenient Healthcare Excellence Award,” Darcy Ortiz. We know you’ll stand up and applaud when you learn why Darcy won. Darcy is a Physician Assistant in Houston. In August, she celebrated five years with RediClinic. She attributes her longevity to the autonomy our clinics afford and flexible schedule, which allows her to participate in her children’s daily lives. When a young mother visited the clinic, Darcy felt an immediate kinship. She also felt concerned. The woman’s symptoms were troubling; Darcy urged the woman to seek outside care immediately. Her patient listened and was later diagnosed with a Stage 3 glioblastoma brain tumor. This spring, Darcy’s patient returned to say thank you and take a photo of them together. Darcy, your story is an inspiration; it reminds us of the impact we can have on our patients’ lives.

We applaud and congratulate, Darcy — Thank you for your exceptional talent and intuition, which very likely helped save a life and preserve a family.
