BRMC, OGH present Golden Stethoscope Awards

Posted on: 03/09/2021

Luis Gonzalez, MD, received Bradford Regional Medical Center’s Golden Stethoscope Award and Jeremy Barnett, MD, was presented the award at Olean General Hospital.

The awards are a result of nominations from employees and are presented semi-annually to physicians who exhibit an exceptional level of professionalism, integrity and teamwork in caring for patients and families, as well as interacting with hospital staff members and fellow physicians.

“Dr. Gonzalez is the consummate physician. He is always kind, helpful, courteous and respectful to the staff and to all he works with. He is well respected and admired by the surgical staff and beloved by his patients. He continually goes above and beyond for his patients, assuring he is their advocate,” according to his nomination.

He earned a medical degree at Escuela de Medicine Juan N. Corpas, completed a residency at Mount Sinai and is certified by the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Gonzalez established his comprehensive surgical practice 25 years ago in Bradford. He is president of the BRMC/OGH medical staff, has served as chief of surgery at BRMC, as secretary and treasurer of the McKean County Medical Society and is a past Upper Allegheny Health System board member. He will join UAHS’ physician network, Bradford Regional Medical Services, March 29.

“Dr. Barnett demonstrates great compassion for patients and their families. He is hardworking and always willing to go the extra mile. I am proud to work alongside such an accomplished and compassionate physician. He makes it a point to personally call families daily, sometimes several times daily, to update them on their loved ones’ condition. Dr. Barnett is a brilliant physician who spends numerous hours educating staff, fostering teamwork and caring for the sickest of the sick. He does all these things, not for recognition, but to help his fellow man/woman,” according to his nomination.

An ICU intensivist at OGH, Dr. Barnett earned a medical degree at the University of Medicine and Dentistry – New Jersey Medical School, completed an internship at Baystate Medical Center, a residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry’s University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center, and fellowships at Mount Sinai Hospital and the Mayo Clinic.
