Yale New Haven physician receives national hospitalist award

11/8/2012 — The American College of Physicians (ACP) recently named Jensa Morris, MD, a top hospitalist in the United States. This honor is awarded to hospitalists — physicians specializing in the care of hospitalized patients — who are making significant contributions to the medical field through their innovation, leadership and clinical skills. The award also considers contributions in the areas of patient safety, community involvement and quality improvement.

Dr. Morris, a resident of Guilford, received her bachelor's degree from Princeton University and her medical degree at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. She completed her internship and residency at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Dr. Morris is also an assistant clinical professor of medicine at Yale School of Medicine.

The ACP describes the recipients of the top hospitalist award as exceptional leaders and teachers, innovators and mentors, researchers and pioneers who are making significant strides in their fields and contribute greatly to the field of hospital medicine.

"The award is well-deserved," noted Peter Herbert, YNHH chief of staff. "Dr. Morris is a highly skilled and extremely caring physician who is applauded by her peers, patients and students alike. Her exceptional dedication to her work, our hospital and our patients made her an outstanding choice for this wonderful accolade."

Dr. Morris has been a hospitalist at YNHH since 2002 and she is one of just 10 hospitalists from throughout the country selected for this award this year.
