HSHS St. Elizabeth's Hospital Expresses Thanks to Area Physicians in Honor of National Doctors' Day, March 30


(O’FALLON, IL)  – Medical providers will be honored at health care organizations throughout the country March 30, 2018 during National Doctors’ Day.  This annual event recognizes physicians for the important role they play in helping patients, promoting overall health, and their significant accomplishments.
 
The annual event was first celebrated March 30, 1933, when Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, set a day aside to honor physicians.  From those beginnings in Winder, Georgia, the celebration spread and the House and Senate officially declared March 30 National Doctors’ Day in 1990.
 
HSHS Elizabeth’s Hospital wishes to extend its deep gratitude and appreciation to physicians for the long hours and dedication in providing excellent patient care of the people in our community.  To express their appreciation, St. Elizabeth’s will be honoring physicians on their Medical Staff with a special celebration around National Doctors’ Day, Friday, March 30 in gratitude of their service.
 
The area is blessed to have a wide range of physicians focusing in a variety of specialties, who are experts in their field.  If your organization is looking for a presentation about a health care topic, please contact St. Elizabeth’s Communications and Marketing department at (618) 234-2120, Ext. 41594 or email StEMarketing@hshs.org, and they can assist in finding a speaker for your organization.
