Fort Lauderdale, FL - Linda Hughes, MD, Chief of Interventional Radiology at Broward Health Imperial Point Medical Center (IPMC), has been selected as one of only three finalists in South Florida Business Journal’s 2011 Excellence in Healthcare Awards.

Dr. Hughes joined North Broward Radiologists (NBR) in 2008 to help develop the vascular and interventional radiology program at IPMC. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the most cutting-edge, minimally invasive technologies which allow patients shorter hospital stays, less pain and faster recovery than a number of more traditional surgeries.

“This is a true demonstration of the outstanding work carried out by Dr. Hughes both for the hospital and our community,” said Mark Sprada, interim CEO of IPMC. “She is a true innovator and very deserving of this recognition.”  

The Excellence in Healthcare Awards was created to recognize the best and brightest professionals and organizations in South Florida’s world-class healthcare industry. On October 6th, the Excellence in Healthcare finalists were recognized at an awards luncheon at the Westin Fort Lauderdale.

Dr. Linda Hughes was a finalist in the Innovator category and featured in the October 7th edition of South Florida Business Journal’s Excellence in Healthcare section.
