The Chattanooga Times Free Press and Edge Magazine, in partnership with the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical Society, presented the first annual Champions of Health Care awards designed to honor individuals and organizations that are making a significant impact on the quality of health care in our community.
University Surgical Associates is proud to recognize two of our seasoned surgeons being honored – Coleman Arnold, M.D., and Michael Carr, M.D. Dr. Arnold was presented the Healthcare Champion’s Physician Award, a recognition that honors a physician whose performance is considered exemplary by patients and peers. Dr. Carr received the Lifetime Achievement Award honoring a healthcare leader who has left a legacy on the quality and delivery of healthcare.

“I’m honored to receive this award, but I have a big support staff – lots of people helping me do this work. This award is also for the people that help me every day – nurses, surgical techs, residents – it’s definitely a team approach,” Dr. Arnold says.
