Bascom Palmer Eye Institute Receives Florida Choice Award in Naples
Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Naples was named a winner of the 11th Annual Southwest Florida Choice Awards presented by the Naples Daily News. The award is given to businesses that are chosen by readers of the paper and its website, naplesnews.com. The winners were acknowledged at a reception held Thursday, June 13, at Artis-Naples, formerly the Naples Philharmonic.
Stephen G. Schwartz, M.D., M.B.A., Medical Director of Bascom Palmer in Naples and associate professor of clinical ophthalmology, said winning the award “is an honor for the whole Naples team. It’s very gratifying to be recognized by our patients and neighbors in Southwest Florida.” The team includes George Corrent, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of clinical ophthalmology, and Jaclyn Kovach, M.D., assistant professor of clinical ophthalmology, who are full-time faculty at the Naples location.
In February, Bascom Palmer broke ground on a new and expanded location, a 1.5-acre site on the northeast corner of U.S. 41 and Cypress Woods Drive, to better serve its growing patient population.
