Published November 2, 2015
Enrique Enguidanos, MD, FACEP received the American College of Emergency Medicine's 2015 Horizon Award for outstanding contributions and participation in ACEP Council activities within the first five years of Council Service. Enrique has rapidly embraced the spirit and conduct of the ACEP Council process, and emerged as an active, respected, and effective leader within the Council. After being introduced to and observing the ACEP Council in 2012, Enrique took a more active role. First, as President Elect of the Washington Chapter of ACEP (WA-ACEP), he was a principal host of the 2013 ACEP Council Meeting in Seattle, the most successful and attended ACEP conference in the organization’s history. He co-sponsored an adopted resolution on health information exchanges and testified on the creation and funding of a national prescription monitoring program. In 2014 as President of WA-ACEP, he organized and coordinated the Washington State delegation that included a record number of new Alternate and Councillors who testified on eight resolutions. Under his guidance, WA-ACEP sponsored a record number of resolutions, all of which were adopted. Because of Enrique's Council involvement, WA-ACEP’s level of attendance, participation, contribution, and leadership in the ACEP Council has never been greater or more respected. Enrique is currently the Immediate Past President of WA-ACEP, Co-Chair of the Providence Health Systems Emergency Services Clinical Decisions Team. He has been practicing Emergency Medicine at Providence Regional Medicine Center in Everett for more than 15 years. He has served as the ED Medical Director at PRMCE as well as Chief of Staff. Enrique received the award during ACEP15 in Boston Oct. 25.
