Dr. Eric Wiebe, MD, (back, center) was chosen as Box Butte General Hospital’s 2017 Fourth Quarter Provider of Choice. He received his award January 24 from CEO Lori Mazanec (standing to the right of him), with a good crowd of BBGH staff present. With him in the photo are Dialysis Unit medical staff members. Dr. Wiebe is an internal medicine physician at Regional West Medical Center who has been the BBGH Dialysis Unit medical director for 15 years. The Dialysis staff nominated him, saying, “Dr. Wiebe always arrives to the unit with a smile. Even in the winter months when traveling from Scottsbluff on treacherous roads, he always manages to get here as scheduled to perform patient rounds. All the patients adore Dr. Wiebe. The staff finds him easy to talk to, down to earth you could say, and the patients feel that way too. He treats them all as if they are the most important thing to him. He takes his time to communicate his concerns and listen to theirs. He even gets to the patients eye level via a stool and will take all the time the patient needs to have their questions answered and all their concerns addressed. He never seems rushed to move on to the next ‘task.’ Dr. Wiebe has calmness about him, that even when having a chaotic day, he manages to bring peace to our unit. His expertise and knowledge is outstanding. We can always count on him to provide the upmost care to our patients.” Congratulations Dr. Wiebe for being chosen the 2017 Fourth Quarter Provider of Choice! Box Butte General Hospital is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
