Obstetrician/Gynecologist Scott Mellum, M.D., honored with Physician Legacy Award

Nominations for the Enloe Physician Legacy Award are submitted by doctors on the medical staff, Enloe employees and volunteers, and local community members. The hospital's medical executive committee reviews the nominations and announces the winner.

“Dr. Mellum is widely known in the community for consistently providing patient-centered care,” said Dr. Marcia Nelson, M.D., MMM, FAAFP, FACPE, vice president and chief medical officer for Enloe Medical Center. “Scott Mellum’s name comes up frequently as a physician who makes patients feel cared for and valued. He is pleasant, respectful, and appreciative of nurses and staff. Dr. Mellum is a compassionate professional who is deserving of the Physician Legacy Award.”

Dr. Mellum began practicing obstetrics and gynecology in Chico in August 1995. He received his undergraduate degree and his medical degree from the University of Nevada School of Medicine in Reno. He completed his residency at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Phoenix, Ariz., and is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology.

Dr. Mellum has served on several hospital committees and has led dozens of patient care initiatives since joining the Enloe medical staff. He served as chair of the Obstetrics/Gynecology department multiple times and was a past recipient of the Enloe Spirit of Planetree award.

The selection process for the Physician Legacy Award includes a review of nominations from physicians, employees, volunteers and community members. The final decision is made by Enloe’s Medical Executive Committee, composed of physicians elected by their peers to lead Enloe’s medical staff.

One nomination stated, “Dr. Mellum is a caring, compassionate man that has great heart for his profession as well as all of the staff. It’s a pleasure to work with him.” Another said, “I value knowing that when I refer patients to him, they will receive excellent medical care with a caring heart.”
