Physician recognized with award from Ascension St. Joseph Hospital

TAWAS CITY, MI – Christopher Oravitz, MD, was recently honored with the Ascension St. Joseph Lighthouse Award for his dedication, integrity and reverence as he provided much needed specialty care to a laboring woman. Dr. Oravitz responded emergently to a situation at Ascension Standish Hospital involving a young mom. Since Ascension Standish Hospital does not have an obstetrics/birthing department, Dr. Oravitz traveled to Standish to manage the delivery. Colleagues, Dr. Bob May and Dr. Jo May nominated him for the Lighthouse Award because of his commitment to providing excellence in patient care.
