All Star Healthcare Solutions Celebrates National Locum Tenens Week with Presentation of All Star Cares Award to Susan Trocciola, MD
This year’s All Star Cares Award was presented to Susan Trocciola, MD, a cardiothoracic surgeon, who has been partnering with All Star Healthcare Solutions since 2015. The event took place virtually via Zoom and kicks off National Locum Tenens Week (Aug. 14–18), sponsored by the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations (NALTO) to honor locum tenens providers throughout the country.
“Each year, we bestow the All Star Cares Award to a provider who leads with the heart and significantly impacts the lives of others, professionally and in the community,” said Ken Bernstein, All Star’s CEO and President. “Dr. Trocciola is being honored for always providing compassionate care to her patients and providing ‘Red Carpet’ Service to our clients and other providers.”
Dr. Trocciola began her career as a high school science teacher, before enrolling in medical school and establishing a career in cardiothoracic surgery. She’s been practicing as a locum tenens provider with All Star Healthcare Solutions since 2015.
“As a locums provider, you really make a difference. If you are not [at that facility], without the needed specialist present, some of those patients wouldn’t be diagnosed or receive treatment. Making sure patients are taken care of, and the hospital and provider are happy, is the All Star way. We’re part of one team,” she said.
“I was ecstatic when you beat breast cancer and so grateful when you were able to resume doing what you love and return to the locums fold,” added C. Jay Kohlback, Team Captain, Locums, who has worked with Dr. Trocciola for the past eight years. “Thank you for your friendship, your loyalty, and the outstanding care you provide.”
“Dr. Trocciola’s journey as a surgeon, cancer survivor, and teacher embodies the spirit of this award,” said Bernstein. “We’re grateful for her relationship with All Star, and we are privileged to name her the 2023 All Star Cares Award honoree.”
The All Star Cares Award recipient is chosen by an Executive Committee based on nominations submitted by the company’s people, clinicians, and/or clients.
