“When the committee looks at the nomination forms, we look for an individual that has strong leadership qualities, is an advocate for patients, staff and community. “ says Fran Sembert, NCMGMA’s Governance Chair and past president. “Since Wake was awarded the Practice of the Year in 2015, we already knew that it was being led by someone that is passionate about what he does, the providers he works for, and the staff he works with. He truly embodies what we look for when choosing the winner of this award.”
