Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Provencher received the Col. Brian Allgood Memorial Leadership Award from the Society of Military Orthopedic Surgeons in December 2017 at the annual meeting of the society.
The memorial award was established in honor of Allgood, an orthopedic surgeon who died in combat in Iraq in 2007. According to a press release, recipients of the award exemplify selfless leadership, commitment to excellence in military orthopedics and loyalty to the ideals of duty, honor and country.
“Dr. Provencher’s military training and the collaborative skills he has developed directly benefit his patients in Vail every day,” Dan Drawbaugh, CEO of The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute, said in the release. “He is not only a world-class surgeon, he’s a world-class leader and person. All those who have worked with Matt know that as accomplished and skilled as he is, the pursuit of excellence in both patient care and leadership are ongoing pursuits for him. We are fortunate to have him on the Steadman team and thrilled for him on this well-deserved recognition.”
