Vanguard Westlake Hospital recently presented its quarterly Very Impressive Physician (VIP) award to Nabil Saleh, M.D., a pediatrician who has been a member of Vanguard Westlake Hospital’s Medical Staff for 31 years.
The VIP Award is presented to a physician each quarter based on nominations received by coworkers, patients and visitors. Physicians who receive the award demonstrate outstanding qualities based on the Hospital’s nine standards of performance, including attitude, appearance, communication, customer waiting, commitment to co-workers, workplace etiquette, privacy, safety awareness and sense of ownership.
“People come from far away to see Dr. Saleh – and my kids and grandkids are among them,” said one Hospital employee, whose family comes from Naperville and Carol Stream just to be treated by Dr. Saleh. “He is passionate about his care – it doesn’t matter what time of day you call, he returns it. He treats you with more than just medicine.”
Dr. Saleh was nominated by his patients and is often referred to as the “Best Physician Ever Known” for his soothing personality and never-ending dedication to patients at Vanguard Westlake Hospital. Dr. Saleh is involved in physician leadership and he is a true advocate for his patients.
Dr. Saleh is also the program physician for Vanguard Westlake Hospital’s Make A Move program, which is a free, 12-week healthy eating and activity program, focused on health education and obesity prevention, for children and their families.
