“We are so pleased and proud to have Dr. Ramos connected with this award-winning health project,” said Lilly. “His work on behalf of patients throughout our region and the nation exemplifies our mission to take a grassroots approach to combating the opioid epidemic in our community and to destigmatize mental health issues.”

“I am honored to receive this award on behalf of our doctors and staff who dedicate time to love our patients and help them in the best possible and responsible way,” said Dr. Ramos. “It is my distinct privilege to work alongside this organization and with people throughout the community who devote time to making change.
The Ramos Center is known to focus their efforts regarding the opioid crisis by trying to maintain a sophisticated and comprehensive set of programs through screening, monitoring, behavioral and physical therapies, and primary and high-level interventional treatments to control pain where it starts, as opposed to prescribing opioids as its first plan of action.
On behalf of Ramos Center, Congratulations Dr. Ramos!
