PLANTATION, Fla. – Shiree A. Berry, M.D., a surgeon at Houston Northwest Medical Center in Houston, Texas, has been honored with Envision Physician Services’ 2018 Acute Surgery Physician of the Year Award. During its annual leadership conference, Envision Physician Services, a leading multispecialty physician group and healthcare service team, presents the award to an acute surgeon who is deemed by peers as a leader in the industry.
“Since a young age, I had the opportunity to shadow and learn from exceptional surgeons,” said Dr. Berry. “Having those mentors and gaining that valuable experience from them is what drives me to want to help my colleagues perform at their best. It’s an honor to receive this award, but I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my colleagues. Together, we’re committed to providing patients the highest quality of care and supporting our community.”
"Dr. Berry’s professionalism, experience and skill inspire trust from her colleagues,” said Tim Puthoff, Chief Executive Officer of Houston Northwest Medical Center. “While serving as interim medical director at two sites, Dr. Berry was able to quickly build confidence across her teams and achieve notable clinical and operational success. She is both a role model and leader for her colleagues.”
In addition to her professional leadership, Dr. Berry has a strong track record of service to her community. She has held multiple leadership positions and devoted her time to various nonprofit organizations, such as New Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, the Junior League of Houston, the Houston Medical Forum and Kids Meals, Inc. Dr. Berry also serves as a mentor to a number of premedical students and delivers guest lectures on various healthcare topics.
Dr. Berry was presented with the award during the Envision Physician Services 2018 Annual Leadership Conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada, in November.
