Three Pediatrics Faculty Receive UW Health Physician Excellence Awards

Jamie Limjoco, MD, Kathleen Maginot, MD, and David Wargowski, MD, were among 10 UW Health physicians who received Physician Excellence Awards at a May 5, 2015, ceremony at the Health Sciences Learning Center.

The awards recognize those who demonstrate exceptional performance in clinical practice, education or regional services and a commitment to the mission, vision and values of UW Health.

Dr. Limjoco received a Rising Star Clinical Excellence Award, which honors outstanding clinicians and educators who have demonstrated exceptional and measurable contributions to clinical practice during their short time at UW Health. Dr. Limjoco’s most significant contribution has been serving as the initial clinical director for the American Family Children’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which opened in May 2014.

Drs. Maginot and Wargowski received Regional Services Excellence Awards, which recognizes physicians who provide extraordinary care for patients at neighboring health care facilities in Wisconsin and beyond.

Dr. Maginot has provided pediatric cardiology care in the Fox Valley area for over five years. She also teaches pediatric residents at UW Health and welcomes local family medicine residents to join her in caring for her patients at the regional clinic.

Dr. Wargowski cares for children with genetic disorders who live in outlying communities. His outstanding communication skills help him communicate with patients and families at what may be the most difficult time in their lives.
