Business briefs: Southport hotel earns award, Hand surgeon honored...

For the sixth consecutive year, Delamar of Southport has earned a AAA Four-Diamond award for its world-class service, facilities and amenities. At a recent lunch, AAA Northeast honored the Delamar staff at the property’s Southport restaurant Artisan.

AAA’s Four- and Five-Diamond award ratings are the travel authority’s highest designations for properties and restaurants.

Each year, AAA inspectors visit more than 28,000 establishments across the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, using the diamond rating system to guide AAA members when choosing places to stay and eat. Of that number, just 0.4 percent receive the prestigious Five Diamond Award; while 5.7 percent receive a Four Diamond.

Currently, 118 properties in the US, Canada, and the Caribbean hold the coveted Five Diamond rating and 1,587 hotels hold the Four Diamond rating.

Fairfield hand surgeon honored

Dr. Scott Wolfe, a hand surgeon who owns a home in Fairfield, received the prestigious Kappa Delta Elizabeth Winston Lanier Award. Considered one of the highest honors that an orthopedic researcher can receive, it is presented by at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons to investigators who make discoveries leading to major advances in the field of orthopedics.

Wolfe, who sees patients at the Hospital for Special Surgery Outpatient Center in Stamford, is chief emeritus of the Hand and Upper Extremity Service at Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

Wolfe’s research, spanning almost three decades, has advanced the understanding of how the wrist functions — more specifically, the wrist motions necessary to carry out a wide range of activities.

Wolfe, along with a colleague, designed new implants for total and partial wrist replacements that, if proven successful, would allow for better movement, enabling patients to return to higher levels of function with less pain.
