Viste, Jr., MD, Young Physician Leadership Award at the Aspirus Wausau Hospital Birthing Center and NICU at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, July 23, 2021. The Kenneth M. Viste, Jr., MD, Young Physician Leadership Award is presented annually to a young physician who demonstrates commitment to patients, the medical profession and the community.
Dr. Siebert is a board-certified Radiologist with Aspirus Health at Radiology Associates of Wausau, Aspirus Ironwood Hospital and Aspirus Wausau Hospital. He is a local, state and national leader in the Wisconsin Radiological Society, American College of Radiology and is a member of the Wisconsin Medical Society. Outside of his extensive medical-related activities, Dr. Siebert lends his time and skills to many community activities including serving as Education Officer for the Central Wisconsin Chapter of the US Power Squadron, previously leading a STEM group for the Boy Scouts and working with a local archery club to safely introduce children to the sport.
“This is a great honor for one of our physicians to receive this Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation award,” said Aspirus Vice President and Senior System Physician Executive of Tertiary Care Ryan Andrews, MD. “Dr. Siebert’s hard work and dedication to his profession goes a long way in helping Aspirus provide top health care to the communities we serve.”
“A person like Dr. Viste, who leaves the kind of legacy he did, serves as a positive example for young physicians such as myself to strive towards,” stated Dr. Siebert upon learning he was to be recognized by the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation. “It reminds me that while some things may change in medicine, paper charts to computer, manual stethoscopes to electronic, the important things like taking the best care of your patients remain unchanged.”
This award comes with a donation made in honor of the recipient to a non-profit of their choosing. The Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation is pleased to present a donation in Dr. Siebert’s honor to the Aspirus Wausau Hospital Birthing Center and NICU.
