Westport resident Dr. Emily Blair, an obstetrics/gynecology specialist, was named Physician of the Year during at Bridgeport Hospital's recent annual physician summit.

"Dr. Blair is an exceptional physician who takes great care of all of her patients," Dr. Michael Ivy, the hospital's chief medical officer, said in announcing Blair's selection. "Consequently, her patients love her, as evidenced by her average patient satisfaction score of 99.6 out of 100 in 2014."

Blair, according to Ivy, donates time to the hospital in many ways, including help with fundraising for the Norma Pfriem Beast Care Center and as a member of the Bridgeport Hospital board of directors for the past seven years.

Blair was one of 38 physicians recognized at the summit for patient satisfaction scores in the 99th percentile, or top tier, compared with peers nationally.
