Physician and Staff Recognition

medical hospitalists
Members of IFMC’s Administrative Council (AC) recognize Inova Promise honorees, seated L-R: Zobair Younossi, MD, MPH, Chair, Dept. of Medicine; Sameh Elgawly, MD, Associate Medical Director, Hospitalist Division, Inova Fairfax Hospital; Ashiq Mannan, MD, Medical Director, Hospitalist Division, Patient Experience, Inova Fairfax Hospital, Dept. of Medicine; Marina Ocasio, RN, Clinical Director, PCCU; and Chapy Venkatesan, MD, Vice Chair, Dept. of Medicine

Dr. Ashiq Mannan, Medical Director, Hospitalist Division/Patient Experience at Inova Fairfax Hospital, was recently recognized for his collaboration with PCCU nursing in coaching his physician partners on effective TRIO Rounds.

Excerpts from his nomination letter, written by PCCU Clinical Director Marina Ocasio, are included below:

“Imagine that - having a team approach to providing feedback in a collaborative and constructive way! It is clear that Ashiq has great leadership qualities that have earned him tremendous respect from his team. Having in the moment feedback and recognition while they were going about their day was clearly appreciated by the doctors that took part in these observations. The nurses were also equally impressed that they were not the primary focus, and that we are invested in providing feedback to others on the team as well. When we take the time to collaborate and invest time in building and mentoring our teams it pays dividends in reaching our goals and building relationships.”
