(EFFINGHAM, IL) – Medical providers will be honored at health care organizations throughout the country March 30, 2017 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 Anthony’s Memorial Hospital wishes to extend its deep gratitude and appreciation to physicians for the long hours and dedication to providing excellent patient care of the people in our community.  To express their appreciation, St. Anthony’s will be honoring physicians on their Medical Staff with a special celebration on National Doctors’ Day, Thursday, March 30 in gratitude of their service.
 
To find physicians in the area, visit St. Anthony’s Web site at stanthonyshospital.org and select “Find a Doctor.”
