Unity Health System has announced that Joseph Francis Giangreco, D.O., is the recipient of Unity's 2014 Physician Recognition Award.
Given by Unity Hospital Medical Staff, the annual award honors a physician who demonstrates commitment to the goals and values of Unity Health System, active participation in the community and the Hospital, and excellence in patient care. Dr. Giangreco, who was nominated by his colleagues at Unity, was chosen by a selection committee made up of administrators, clinical leaders, employee representatives and medical staff.
"Dr. Giangreco continues to treat every one of his patients and their families with the utmost respect," said Dustin Riccio, M.D., President of Unity Medical Staff and Chief of Unity’s Emergency Center. "He is frequently found down on one knee explaining the simplest and most complex medical conditions to his patients. He is recognized by all staff within the institution as a sounding board for medical advice."
Dr. Giangreco started working at Park Ridge Hospital, now Unity Hospital, in 1990. During his time with Unity, he was a member of Unity's medical executive committee and was awarded the Friend of Nursing Award last year. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
Dr. Giangreco will be honored at Unity’s Medical Staff Spring Dinner.
Giangreco resides in Penfield.
