Three employees at USA Health were included in the 2017 class of the Mobile Bay 40 Under 40. Through a nomination process, the annual Mobile Bay 40 Under 40 awards identify 40 of the area’s young professionals who will benefit the community for years to come with their leadership, professional excellence and community service.
Dr. Natalie Fox, pediatric nurse practitioner and director of nursing at USA Physicians Group, feels honored to have been included in the list. “Receiving this recognition encourages me to continue to grow as a leader by serving others,” she said. “I am grateful for all of the wonderful mentors I have had at USA that have helped me grow over the years.”
Dr. Fox earned both her bachelor of science in nursing and master of science in nursing from USA. She also completed her doctorate of nursing practice degree at USA last year.
“Through leadership and service, it is my personal mission that at the end of each day I am able to say that I have helped people lead longer, better lives,” Dr. Fox said.
Dr. Weisi Yan, assistant professor of interdisciplinary clinical oncology and a radiation oncologist with USA Mitchell Cancer Institute, said the award makes him motivated to keep seeking excellence as a physician and resident of Mobile. “I am very grateful to be a part of USA and feel honored to have the University’s trust in me to represent them in the community,” he said.
“The greatest reward to a physician is that he makes a difference to the institution he belongs to,” Dr. Yan said.
USA College of Medicine alum Dr. Charles Hartin, associate professor of surgery at the USA College of Medicine and a pediatric surgeon with USA Physicians Group, is excited to use the publicity from his honor to share information with the community about the surgical program at USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital.
“Many Mobilians are surprised to learn that USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital is the only location in the southern half of Alabama where a child requiring surgery is cared for by a surgeon and an anesthesiologist both trained and board-certified for expertise with children,” Dr. Hartin said. “This makes a huge difference in outcomes and the patient experience.”
Another USA College of alum was named to the 2017 Mobile Bay 40 Under 40 Class. Dr. Grant Zarzour, an orthopaedic surgeon in private practice in Mobile, Ala., was among those honored this year. He graduated from the USA College of Medicine in 2007 and completed his residency training in orthopaedic surgery at USA.
