(GREENVILLE, IL) – Medical providers will be honored at health care organizations throughout the country March 30, 2020 during National Doctors’ Day. This annual event honors physicians for the important role they play in helping patients, promoting overall health and recognizes 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 Holy Family Hospital is always grateful for the physicians that they work alongside but particularly this year with the COVID-19 pandemic occurring across the country. President and CEO Kelly Sager shared, “We are facing an unprecedented time in our history where the roles we fill in health care are focused and united like never before. This is our calling and I am extremely grateful to our physician partners for their service to the community, as well as for the invaluable role they play in emergency response,” she said. “We are proud to partner with them in keeping our patients and community safe and well cared for at all times.”
 
To find physicians in the area, visit Holy Family’s website at hshsholyfamily.org and select “Find a Doctor.”
