Providence Physicians Named 2014 Top Doctors in 'Washingtonian'

Feb 27, 2014

For more than 152 years, Providence has provided the highest quality healthcare, led by a team of physicians who are at the pinnacle of their profession.  We are proud to celebrate the achievements of these medical professionals - our Top Doctors, recognized by their medical peers and our community in Washingtonian magazine.

These physicians are part of a proud tradition of clinical excellence.  Founded in 1861 by the Daughters of Charity, Providence is the longest continuously operating hospital in Washington, DC.  Providence offers a wide range of specialty services delivered by a medical staff of more than 500 providers as part of Ascension Health - the nation's largest Catholic nonprofit healthcare system.

Clinical specialties include orthopaedics (E. Anthony Rankin Pavilion), bariatrics, diabetes care (at our affiliated Joslin Diabetes Center), maternal and infant health, cardiology, stroke care, geriatric medicine, and skilled nursing and rehabilitation services at Carroll Manor.  Providence offers graduate medical teaching programs and rotational opportunities for nursing, medical students, and residents.  Providence also provides comprehensive care with an extensive network of Family and Internal Medicine primary care providers.
