Outstanding Physician of General Medicine Award
We are excited to share that Dr. Jason Abney, Medical Director at Silverado's Newport Mesa community, has been honored by the Senior Care Hero Awards program with the Outstanding Physician of General Medicine Award for 2013. The program recognizes the accomplishments and contributions of the unsung heroes who work in senior care and healthcare.
Dr. Abney was recognized for the passion, commitment and exceptional care that he provides to those with memory loss. He spent the majority of his physician career working with seniors, devoting his time and energy to administering care to the frailest of the frail, those patients who are homebound. He is deeply committed to Housecall Doctors' core value — to make a difference in the lives of their patients.
As Assistant Medical Director, Dr. Abney provides mentoring and leadership to the physician assistants, nurse practitioners and his fellow physicians at Housecall Doctors. In addition to being a visiting clinician, he leads the Quality Assurance committee which defines and implements policies for ongoing improved care of the homebound. Dr. Abney also serves as an instructor for Downey Regional Medical Center, leading medical students, residents and fellows in their geriatric rotation. He currently serves as medical director for both Silverado Hospice and Silverado Newport Mesa and is in the process of becoming Board Certified in Hospice and Palliative Care.
In celebration of November’s National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness month Silverado Newport Mesa residents and staff joined hundreds of others for this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, their team properly named the Silverado Striders.
