Allison J. Murphy, MD, Named April St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician
Start Date


Allison Murphy, MDPort Huron, MI…Allison J. Murphy, MD, was named the April 2012 St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician. The St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician award highlights a physician’s commitment to working collaboratively to promote patient and community health through clinical excellence and patient-focused care. Physicians honored with this award must also be one whom St. Joseph Mercy Hospital staff and volunteers would recommend to family and friends in the community.

An Emergency Department physician, Dr. Murphy provides care and treatment to patients through the St. Joseph Mercy Emergency Room (ER). She was nominated for her kind and compassionate manner with patients and staff.

“Dr. Murphy is an excellent ER physician,” comments her nominator. “She is always kind and considerate. During her shift she attends to many different patients, all of whom are given the best possible care. When working with staff, she is always professional and approachable. She works to educate staff as needed, and never in a demeaning way. Dr. Murphy is often remembered by patients. One patient, who had returned to our ER made the comment that Dr. Murphy explained everything so well and made the patient feel at ease. I would recommend Dr. Murphy for emergency care because she is open and honest. She doesn’t tell the patients what they want to hear, but rather the truth; which is ultimately what the patients truly need.”

“Dr. Murphy is a terrific asset to our health care community,” states Becky Smith, RN, St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron (SJMPH) Interim President and CEO. “Her outstanding performance has been noted by those who work most closely with her and has been highlighted through her nomination. I wish to extend my sincere appreciation to Dr. Murphy for elevating the health status of our community.”

“I am honored to be recognized with this award by the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital community,” comments Allison Murphy, MD. “I feel the level of care I can provide is only possible, and is strengthened, by the excellent quality of our health care team.”

The St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician Award is designed to highlight outstanding collaboration between our physician community and St. Joseph Mercy Hospital patient care and volunteer staff. Nominations are accepted from all staff and volunteers, and are blinded and reviewed by a Nominations Review Committee. The award is presented routinely to a physician on staff at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital.
