TriState Health’s Provider of Excellence Award


The TriState Provider of Excellence Award was created in honor of Dr. Richard Weiland, one of the original four primary care providers who joined the TriState Health Primary Care Clinics in 2011. Dr. Weiland truly represented what it meant to embody TriState’s mission and vision through leadership, integrity, community involvement and patient-centered care. He was firmly committed to his patients and volunteered his time at the Snake River Medical Clinic. He was immersed in several leadership roles during his time at TriState and served for almost three decades as Medical Director of Home Health and Hospice, now known as Elite Home Health and Hospice. Through his leadership and patient-centered care, he paved the way for what each TriState provider strives to be. Dr. Weiland passed in 2015 after complications from heart disease. We are honored to have had Dr. Weiland as part of our TriState team.

Please join us in congratulating our second recipient of the Provider of Excellence Award, LeRoy Smith, MD, of TriState General Surgery. Dr. Smith was nominated by many of his patients and peers for this distinction and we celebrate him for the characteristics that make him such a unique and cherished provider. His compassionate care and dedication to his patients clearly do not go unnoticed.

Dr. Smith has over 35 years of experience in general surgery and is certified by the American Board of Surgery. He joined TriState Health in June 2016. Thank you, Dr. Smith, we are proud to have you as part of the TriState Family!

Patients, family members, co-workers, physicians, or staff can nominate a TriState provider who exemplifies these qualities. A single provider of any specialty will be awarded this recognition every year in celebration of National Doctors’ Day.
