The Woodlands, Texas -- During a recent celebration of Doctors' Day, St. Luke's Community Medical Center (CMC) - The Woodlands announced Jefy M. Mathew M.D., FCCP, D.ABSM as Physician of the Year.

Dr. Mathew is a Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine physician and board-certified Sleep Disorder Specialist, and practices with the Respiratory & Sleep Disorders Specialists group.

He was chosen among two other peer nominations: Dr. Daniel L. Grimmer, Pathologist, and Dr. Ather Siddiqi, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine physician and board-certified Sleep Disorder Specialist.

St. Luke's management team and staff collected ballots which nominated physicians for the award based upon their commitment to quality and excellence in health care, demonstrated level of patient-focused care, and leadership among their physician peers and patient care staff.

During the celebration, Debra Sukin, CEO of St. Luke's CMC - The Woodlands, said, "Each of these physicians truly represents quality and excellence in healthcare. In addition, they have allowed myself and the management team to achieve great successes in this hospital. Perhaps I can best sum this up by the following quote which is,'Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.'"

"These physicians should take much pride in not only being experts in their own field, but in also going above and beyond in touching the lives of our staff and making their impact on this campus."
