Dr. John Zimmermann Receives Humanitarian Award for 45 Years of Philanthropy

humanitarianAt the Aesthetic Surgery Center of Napa Valley, we are committed to helping the underprivileged around the world receive the care and treatment to which they would otherwise have little to no access. Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. John Zimmermann, has traveled extensively to provide his expertise and skill to disadvantaged individuals. To date, he has visited 15 underdeveloped countries and performed much needed cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. To honor his tireless work, the Marquette Medical Alumni Association recently bestowed Dr. Zimmermann with a Humanitarian Award for his 45 years of service and dedication to global health.

Presented on May 1, 2015, by Dr. Zimmermann’s alma mater, the Medical College of Wisconsin, the Humanitarian Award recognizes our plastic surgeon’s devotion to global health and well-being. In addition to acknowledging his 45 years of mission trips, the accolade also highlights his 23 years of leadership within his medical fields.

Dr. Zimmermann is honored to receive this prestigious distinction, and he looks forward to continuing his outreach programs and assisting patients with their plastic and reconstructive needs both at home and around the globe.

After the Earthquake

photo421It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to see a community rallying together in action…but the 2014 6.0 earthquake here in Napa did just that and made me happy and proud to be a member of this community.

It was so very reassuring to be able to see the triage of earthquake injured patients at the Queen of the Valley Hospital work so well, and that so many people volunteered their services. It’s a tribute to all of our hospitals to see them serve their communities, and the cooperation and selflessness that I witnessed demonstrated how we can all work together when the situation demands, when the going gets tough.

Thanks to all of those folks in healthcare in Napa and the surrounding areas for reaching out to others!

There is so much to do, and there may be a mountain of debris…shards of glass and clumps of brick…to haul off in the weeks that follow, but I am sure of the good will that encompassed this valley as they held together and reached out to one another. This makes me want to raise a glass…of wine, of course…and toast ‘Thanks, and all the best to all of you.’
