RE: Doctors’ Day March 30
Healer. Detective. Adviser. Confidante. Comforter. These are among the many roles doctors fulfill each
day as they care for patients and their families. Whether it is in a hospital, a clinic, or a long-term care
facility, doctors work tirelessly to make sure patients get the care they need.
On March 30, healthcare organizations will celebrate National Doctors’ Day. First observed in Winder,
Georgia in 1933, Doctors’ Day honors the contributions physicians make to communities across the
country. At Bayfront Health, we are proud to honor the work of the more than 600 physicians on our
Caring for the sick and maintaining good health for those who are well requires teamwork of the highest
level, and doctors are at the core of this relationship. We work closely with the physicians on our
medical staff to deliver quality, personalized care to each patient. Having physicians who share this
commitment and our mission to deliver high-quality care is important to us and we’re fortunate that
members of our medical staff share these beliefs.
We’re committed to making sure the community has access to the healthcare services it needs. That’s
why recruiting and retaining talented physicians and surgeons to our community is a top priority. We
also appreciate those physicians who have served as the foundation of our medical staff over the years.
And so, as Bayfront Health celebrates Doctors’ Day, we recognize all the doctors in the community for
their contributions, and we say a special thank you to the members of our medical staff for their
dedication to our patients.
