Two Physicians From IPC The Hospitalist Company Named Top Hospitalists Of 2011

IPC The Hospitalist Company, Inc. (Nasdaq: IPCM), a leading national hospitalist physician group practice company, announced today that Jasmin M. Baleva, M.D., and David Bowman, M.D. were named by ACP Hospitalist as two of the Top Ten Hospitalists in the nation. Both were recognized in the November 2011 issue of the magazine, a publication of the American College of Physicians.

Dr. Baleva, IPC’s Practice Group Leader at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center in Houston, Texas, launched the first medical-pediatrics practice group in the Houston area. As a medical-pediatrics hospitalist, her patients range from newborns to end-of-life cases in various clinical environments. An IPC physician since 2001, Dr. Baleva was the first hospitalist in Houston to initiate an organized effort to bring a hospitalist practice group into skilled nursing and assisted living facilities. She was also instrumental in starting a long-term acute care (LTAC) hospitalist practice at Methodist Hospital Willowbrook in Houston. In April 2011, Dr. Baleva was recognized as an IPC Hospitalist of the Year.

Dr. Bowman serves as Regional Executive Director for the IPC practice group in Tucson, Arizona. He leads a team of 80 hospitalists, which he grew from a small presence when he joined the company in 2000. In October of this year, Dr. Bowman’s achievements as a physician executive were also recognized by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) and American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE) which honored him with the “Physician Executive of the Year” award for 2011. It is also noteworthy that in January 2011 Dr. Bowman was the first physician on the scene helping the victims of the Tucson, Arizona shooting, when six people were killed and 13 others injured, including U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

“We are very proud that both Dr. Baleva and Dr. Bowman have been honored by the ACP as two of the country’s eminent hospitalists,” said Adam Singer, M.D., chairman and CEO of IPC The Hospitalist Company. “Both physicians exemplify IPC’s core values of leadership, professionalism and teamwork, representing our commitment to delivery of the highest quality patient care.”
