"This year, we are happy to announce that Dr. Blanchfield has been chosen as St. Luke's Warren Physician of the Year.
In July, members of the medical staff and hospital employees were given the opportunity to nominate physicians whom they felt best embodied the hospital's mission and vision. It is a testament to the quality of our physicians that we had enthusiastic participation and received many eloquent nominations. Thirty-three physicians were nominated this year - the most we have ever had!
A selection committee comprised of Board Members, Senior Management and Nursing Leadership, was given the difficult task of selecting a winner.
Dr. Blanchfield received his award at the St. Luke's Warren Hospital Foundation Gala on Saturday, September 13th at the Grand Colonial. He and his wife were our guests of honor for the evening."
