Caring physicians honored as We Care celebrates 25 years

It’s been 25 years since professionals from the Duval County Medical Society first formed the We Care Jacksonville network of volunteer doctors and nurses to donate care to uninsured patients, and the nonprofit celebrated its silver anniversary by awarding five of its own with Caring Awards at its annual gala Aug. 25 at the Marriott Southpoint Hotel.

Honored with the George S. Trotter, MD Founder’s Award was Dr. Stan Longenecker of Ortega, an orthopedic surgeon at Jacksonville Orthopedic Institute.

Receiving Awards of Service were Dr. Michael Solloway of the Southbank, a psychiatrist with Baptist Health, and Dr. Stephen Buckley, Dr. Paul Nowicki of Avondale, and Dr. Jenny Whitworth, all gynecology oncologists with Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center. Also recognized with a newly-created Award of Service was Freddie Webster, RN, director of Patient Services at We Care Jacksonville, Inc.

Kathy Harris chaired the event which included a silent auction, cocktails, dinner and dancing.
