In April, NCMS member Dr. Mindy Merritt was selected as the 2023 Physician of the Year in Carteret County.

The Physician of the Year award is given to a physician who consistently achieves high standards in the practice of medicine and is looked upon as a role model by his or her peers.

Merritt leads Carteret Health Care’s Breast Program in the Cancer Center. Under her leadership, Carteret Health Care’s Cancer earned accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) of the American College of Surgeons, making it only one of thirteen facilities in North Carolina who currently have earned accreditation by the NAPBC.
