On Friday, January 18th the New Jersey Hospital Association, the state’s oldest and largest healthcare trade association, held its annual awards program to honor several individuals and organizations for their commitment to the state’s healthcare system and the patients and communities they serve.  Geralyn Prosswimmer, M.D., FAAP, Chief Medical Officer, Hunterdon Healthcare Partners, received the 2019 Healthcare Professional of the Year award.  The award was presented during NJHA’s 100th Annual Meeting at the Hyatt Regency Princeton, which closed NJHA’s centennial year.

Dr. Geralyn Prosswimmer, of Raritan Township, has had a direct impact on the health of Hunterdon County’s entire population since she joined Hunterdon Pediatric Associates in 1987. Since then, she has developed opioid and benzodiazepine prescribing dashboards to raise awareness with providers about prescribing habits and provide data on patients using controlled substances, controlled substance agreements and the use-of-risk tools to tackle the opioid epidemic head-on.

Dr. Prosswimmer has also championed the development of compassionate end-of-life care conversation tools, incorporating behavioral health tools into primary care and the commitment to the Patient-Centered Medical Home model of care delivery.
