HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals thank doctors on national observance

Physicians will be honored at HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals during National Doctors’ Day on March 30. The day recognizes physicians for the important role they play in helping patients, promoting overall health and by recognizing their significant accomplishments.

The day was first celebrated on March 30, 1933, when Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, set a day aside to honor physicians. From those beginnings, the celebration spread and the House and Senate officially declared March 30 National Doctors’ Day in 1990.

Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s Heart hospitals wish to extend their deep gratitude and appreciation to the physicians for their long hours and dedication to providing excellent patient care of the people in our community. 

“The physicians practicing at our hospitals and clinics make a difference in the lives of the patients we serve. We are so appreciative of the care and dedication they provide,” said Andy Bagnall, president and CEO, Sacred Heart Hospital.

“We are blessed by physician partners who support our Franciscan healing mission. Patient and family centered care is at the center of all we do,” said Charisse Oland, president and CEO, St. Joseph’s Hospital. “We embrace all of our physician partners for a day of recognition and celebration of their commitment and dedication.”
