Awarded annually, the Master of the ACC Award recognizes and honors Fellows of the ACC who have consistently contributed to the goals and programs of ACC and have provided leadership in important ACC activities.
The designation recognizes that Dr. Larsen has achieved a high level of training and experience with the UroLift® System and demonstrated a commitment to exemplary care for men suffering from symptoms associated with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).
This achievement establishes LGMC as the region’s most prepared destination for trauma, as it provides the resources and staffing needed to handle major emergencies. In addition to care for medical emergencies, such as a stroke or heart attack, LGMC’s Level II Trauma Center will also provide multidisciplinary, comprehensive services for the critically injured patients.
The doctors earned Top Performer awards for treating patients who have the chronic conditions targeted in Quality Blue – diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), vascular disease and chronic kidney disease.
The Gayle and Tom Benson Cancer Center at Ochsner Medical Center - Jefferson Highway (OMC - Jefferson Highway) was once again recently named to the 2018 Becker’s Hospital Review “100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Oncology Programs” list. It was the only hospital in Louisiana to be recognized.
The award specifically honors Ochsner Cancer Institute’s Precision Cancer Therapy Program (PCTP), a partnership with non-profit Translational Genomics Institute (TGen), which offers early-phase clinical trials to Ochsner cancer patients.
