Adam D. Singer, M.D., IPC chairman and CEO, said, “Although it was difficult to narrow down choices from the incredibly strong talent pool we have to draw upon, it became clear that Dr. Shumway, Dr. Rondon, and Ty Montgomery were most deserving to be selected as Hospitalists of the Year for 2012. These outstanding clinical leaders uphold the highest standards of excellence for which IPC is known, and it is our privilege to include them in the IPC family.”About IPC the Hospitalist Company, Inc.
