National Doctors Day – March 30th

Today’s healthcare system is more complicated than ever, requiring doctors to use more advancements, tools, and information to diagnose and treat their patients.  It can be overwhelming at times, and today we are honoring those men and women who see us throughout the year.

March 30th is the annual observation of National Doctors Day.  Established on March 30, 1933, by Dr. Charles B Almond’s wife, Eudora Brown Almond in Winder, Georgia.  Greeting cards were mailed, and flowers were placed on the graves of deceased doctors.  The red carnation is commonly used as the symbolic flower for National Doctors Day.

In 1991, President George Bush proclaimed National Doctors Day in Proclamation 6253.

The Southwest Medical Village want to take the opportunity to thank all of the physicians at the Southwest Medical Village; along with doctors all over the country for responding phone calls during all hours of the night, working long hours and providing consistent care. In addition to the doctors we recognize, countless others facilitate the other duties of a medical practice, which is no easy task.  The amount of work, stress, and sacrifice by all in the healthcare field is acknowledged and appreciated!
