Dr. William Dalsey Awarded ACEP’s 2014 Distinguished Emergency Department Director



William Dalsey, MD, FACEP, chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Capital Health, was named 2014 Distinguished Emergency Department Director. The award is given by Blue Jay Consulting, the Emergency Medicine Foundation, and American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). The award is given to an outstanding emergency department director who demonstrates collaborative efforts to improve healthcare.

Dr. Dalsey’s passion for emergency medicine has been recognized outside of Emergency Medical Associates on numerous occasions. He received the 2013 Outstanding Physician Assistant Educator/Mentor Award from the New Jersey State Society of Physician Assistants. Dr. Dalsey also has earned the NJ-ACEP Heroes Award, NJ-ACEP Clinician of the Year Award and Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus’ “Caring For and About People” Humanitarian Award, among other accolades.

"In a very short period of time, Dr. Dalsey has been able to work with the existing medical staff, allied health staff, ED nurses and support departments to successfully improve our quality metrics and patient satisfaction scores,” said Larry DiSanto, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Capital Health.

“We’re proud of the nationally recognized work that Dr. Dalsey and his colleagues are doing to implement innovative strategies at both of our medical centers to help patients receive the best, most efficient emergency care possible,” said Eileen Horton, vice president of Patient Services and chief nursing officer at Capital Health.

“Dr. Dalsey has been with Emergency Medical Associates since 2001, and during this time I have seen repeated examples of his ability to work collaboratively with nursing and other departments to improve processes in the emergency department. The outcome of his work consistently leads to improvements in quality and patient satisfaction,” explains Ray Iannaccone, MD, FACEP, FACHE, president and chief executive officer of Emergency Medical Associates.

Dr. Dalsey, a partner of Emergency Medical Associates, was instrumental in helping make drastic improvements to the emergency departments at Capital Health’s two hospitals.

“He possesses the distinct skills needed to be a collaborative leader, and his ability to nurture and grow pertinent relationships is truly remarkable. His leadership style is clearly based on a belief system that any organization is only as effective as the sum of its parts, and to that end endorses a team approach toward goal achievement,” said Dr. Iannaccone. “These skills continue to contribute to an atmosphere that inherently improves quality.”
