In honor of National Doctors’ Day on March 30, HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals would like to take the time to thank the physicians who serve our hospitals and our communities. The annual observance recognizes doctors for the important role they play in helping patients in their wellness journey.

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, in 1991, National Doctors’ Day was proclaimed by President George Bush.

Normally on March 30, the health care industry pauses to recognize the service of doctors everywhere and celebrate those who have dedicated their lives to the medical profession. This Doctors’ Day, there is no time to pause and the coronavirus pandemic has stalled most celebrations.

Doctors are being asked to work longer, tougher hours to bring their expertise, care and passion for helping people now more than ever. HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals wish to extend its deep gratitude and appreciation for that work.

“The physicians practicing at our hospitals and clinics make a difference in the lives of the patients we serve,” said John Wagner, president and CEO, HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital. “We celebrate our physician partners for their commitment and dedication,” said Sandy Anderson, interim president and CEO, HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital.
