Eleven Physicians Receive Knowlton Incentive for Excellence Awards
Tuesday, December 07, 2021
Eleven Washington University School of Medicine physicians at Barnes-Jewish Hospital were recently honored with 2021 Knowlton Incentive for Excellence Awards that recognize and support medical residents who exemplify a compassionate spirit combined with outstanding knowledge and skill.
The physicians were recognized during a virtual ceremony held on Dec. 6, 2021.
The awards program fund was established in 1984 by St. Louis real estate and business leader Charles J. Cella to honor his physician, Norman Knowlton Jr., MD, for his compassionate caregiving. Dr. Knowlton was a professor emeritus of clinical medicine in internal medicine at Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Both men have since passed away.
The Knowlton Incentive for Excellence Fund at The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital is stewarded by a committee chaired by Dr. Norman Knowlton, III. In the past 35 years, more than 200 awards have been given to fellows who have completed internal medicine residency programs, embody the “Knowlton spirit” of care, and are likely to practice in the St. Louis area. This year’s recipients and their areas of practice are:
Stephen Chi, MD, pulmonary/critical care
