BRUNSWICK, Georgia: March 25, 2009 – In recognition of National Doctor’s
Day, March 30, Southeast Georgia Health System will recognize the more
than 380 physicians who have privileges at its multiple facilities in
Glynn, Camden, Brantley, and McIntosh counties, and who dedicate their
time to taking care of our communities.
“Each year we take the time to recognize our physicians, who through
their dedication and sacrifices, have helped our Health System become
a leader in health care. We continuously hear about not only the professionalism
and level of expertise of our doctors, but how they go above and beyond
patient and family expectations. The compassion and caring from our doctors
is at the very heart of what is important to our patients in addition
to the outstanding medical treatment they provide,” says Health
System President and CEO Gary R. Colberg, FACHE. “We are proud of
what they do every day as they work side-by-side with our team of top-notch
staff and medical professionals.”
The physicians will be honored with a Doctor’s Day Luncheon at the
Brunswick and Camden Campuses on Monday, March 30.
The first Doctor’s Day was observed on March 30, 1933, in the small
town of Winder, Georgia. While the day was celebrated in Georgia, it did
not become a national holiday until Oct. 30, 1990, when then President
George H.W. Bush signed the law designating March 30 as National Doctor’s Day.
