Two local physicians, Dr. Eric Mazur of Weston and Dr. Peter Dodds of Wilton, have been honored with Norwalk Hospital’s 2014 William J. Tracey, MD Award for their leadership, character and superior clinical skills.

Each year, the William J. Tracey Award is presented to the physicians whose exemplary commitment and philanthropic leadership strengthens Norwalk Hospital as a progressive leader in the healing arts. The Tracey Award celebrates the accomplishments of Dr. William J. Tracey, Norwalk Hospital’s first chief of staff, who served for 42 years.

“Dr. Mazur and Dr. Dodds are exceptional physicians, known for their warm, endearing personalities and superior clinical skills. Both have made significant contributions to the field of medicine and have played a key role in Norwalk Hospital’s growth and success over the years,” said Dr. Howard Eison, chairman, Norwalk Hospital Foundation board of directors, who presented the awards.

Most recently, Dr. Mazur was the vice president and chief medical officer at Norwalk Hospital and before that, the chairman of medicine from 1995 to 2011.

Under his leadership, Norwalk Hospital was named a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence by HealthGrades 2010-12, placing Norwalk Hospital among the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for clinical performance.

His leadership efforts have also helped the hospital achieve measurable excellence in resident education and patient care, in part through the implementation of computerized physician order entry systems and automated clinical decision support.

As chairman of medicine, Dr. Mazur led the development of a novel teaching hospitalist program that has received widespread recognition and has been profiled in several national publications.

“In addition to their impressive personal and professional contributions, both Eric and Peter have been extremely generous in their philanthropic support of Norwalk Hospital, and for that we are grateful as well,” said Chairman Eison.
