Flaget Memorial Hospital Recognizes 2021 Physician of the Year; 2021 Advanced Practice Provider of the Year


BARDSTOWN, Ky. (Nov. 29, 2021) –Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of CHI Saint Joseph Health, recently recognized Jon Myers, MD, as its 2021 Physician of the Year, and Katherine Nauert, FNP-C, APRN, as its 2021 Advanced Practice Provider of the Year. Myers, of Paducah, is a radiologist, and Katherine Nauert, of Louisville, is a family nurse practitioner. Both were recognized during virtual ceremonies in early November.

The hospital annually recognizes one outstanding physician who consistently shows care and compassion to patients while demonstrating the commitment towards conducting an excellent practice. 

“Dr. Myers is very deserving of the physician of the year award,” said one of his colleagues. “He is known for his collaborative nature and wealth of radiology knowledge, is well respected by the medical staff and works very closely with our imaging technologists to assure the best care for our patients. He performs numerous invasive procedures each week with skillful hands – on top of a very busy schedule.”

This year’s Advanced Practice Provider of the Year recipient, Katherine Nauert, was also identified for her high-quality patient care by colleagues.

“Kathy is an amazing ARNP,” said her colleague. “The patients under her care benefit from her clinical expertise and skill. She demonstrates compassion with every patient interaction and works hard to care for the patients in the emergency department, staying over when needed to ensure patients can be seen in a timely fashion during the COVID-19 pandemic. She has been extremely flexible this past year dealing with the fluctuations in patient volume and the nurses enjoy working with her.”
