Parrish Medical Center Hospitalist Group Honored Nationwide

TITUSVILLE, FL (February 17, 2023) – Parrish Medical Center’s hospitalist group, Apogee Physicians™, has been recognized as Program of the Month – a distinction bestowed upon only one hospital program monthly of more than 50 programs nationwide. In addition to this honor, Parrish Medical Center’s Director of Hospital Staff and Medical Director of Parrish Medical Group, Dr. Kevat Patel, has been named Hospitalist of the Month.

Of the honor, Dr. Patel said, "It is an absolute privilege to be part of Parrish Medical Center. Apogee and Parrish are one big family with a commitment of providing safe, healing and exceptional patient care. We are honored to receive this recognition but we, as doctors and nurse practitioners, cannot do it alone.”

Dr. Patel continued, “Our success is deeply rooted in the support we receive from the Parrish Medical Center board of directors, administration, the more than 1,300 care partners that make up this healing organization, and, perhaps most importantly, those who allow us to practice the art of medicine every day – our community. Without you, our degrees would be just mere pieces of paper on a wall.”

“We were, are and will always be one family dedicated to person and family-centered care. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for this wonderful honor. It is truly a testament to the healing experiences that take place every day at Parrish Medical Center", Dr. Patel concluded.

Parrish Medical Center and Apogee Physicians™ have been in partnership since 2020. For more information on the services Parrish Medical Center provides, please visit
