Henrico doctor honored as ‘Humanitarian’ by local hospital

Dr. William D. Brickhouse, an orthopaedic surgeon and occupational health specialist with Advanced Orthopaedics, was honored Feb. 26 by HCA Parham Doctors' Hospital with the Frist Humanitarian Award. Frist Awards are given in memory of the humanitarian spirit and philanthropic work of the late Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Sr., a founder of Hospital Corporation of America, the predecessor company of HCA.

The award honors employees, volunteers and physicians at HCA-affiliated facilities on a local and national level. Recipients are chosen for their demonstration of extraordinary concern for the welfare and happiness of patients, co-workers and their communities.

Brickhouse he was cited in a nomination for his “extra time with patients” and “excellent bedside manner.”

“He treats every patient, nurse and HCA employee with kindness and respect,” the nomination read. It called him a “true gentleman” who “is very active in the church and community and a great servant leader who sets an example for all HCA employees.”

Brickhouse has been with Advanced Orthopaedics since 1993 and specializes in knee and hip-related issues, as well as identifying and treating work-related musculoskeletal injuries. He has a long history in Richmond starting with his Internship at the Medical College of Virginia, followed by residencies at MCV and the Children’s Hospital with a chief residency in Orthopaedic surgery at MCV from 1982 until 1983.

Three winners (one employee, one volunteer and one physician) from each campus of Henrico Doctors' Hospital were selected by a committee consisting of past Frist Award Winners, staff, first line managers and directors. The undertaking involves the whole hospital as the selection process starts when employees, volunteers, and physicians put their heads together to nominate a co-worker.
