We have a critical opportunity to help advance the reputation of UF Health Shands, which was ranked as the No. 1 hospital in Florida by U.S. News & World Report’s 2020-21 Best Hospitals survey because of the high-quality care we deliver and the outstanding reputation we continue to generate. Help us ensure we remain in the top spot and rise in the rankings in even more specialties.
Why does this matter so much? Because reputation awareness bolsters patient choice, provides enhanced opportunities for collaboration with community physicians and supports our recruitment of the best physicians, nurses and experts to help us move medicine forward. At the heart of all these efforts is our commitment to serving our patients and improving lives.
Voting through Doximity for our specialty is open now for all who previously claimed their profile through Doximity.com. All qualifying physicians will receive an invitation email from Doximity with a request to vote. When you do, please take a moment to connect through the link and vote.
Some eligible physicians may receive a paper survey via mail, so please check all your inboxes and respond to these invitations.
If you do not receive an email, you may still be able to go directly to Doximity to vote. Simply go to your Doximity profile page, and the vote button should appear once ballots become available for your specialty.
– Vote now – U.S. News & World Report does not publish specific dates for when the survey will end, so voting now will ensure your vote counts.
– Be sure to complete your ballot.
– Pay attention to the drop-down selections to make sure you choose the correct hospital — system names can create confusion.
– Tip: If you have trouble locating our institution, you can type “Shands” into the search.
All of the basic information and important links for this voting process reside on the Bridge portal, which you can access directly at https://Bridge.UFHealth.org/doximity/ or by typing “Doximity” in the search bar of Bridge. You may also contact our UF Health colleague Sam Pollock at 352-594-1338 with any questions about this voting process.
Thank you for helping to move medicine forward and advance the reputation of UF Health.
