Hospitals and medical offices around the nation celebrate National Doctors
Day on March 30, a special day conceived by Eudora Brown Almond, wife
of physician Charles B. Almond, M.D., to say thank you to doctors for
their commitment to patients and their communities. Southeast Georgia
Health System marked the occasion by recognizing the more than 300 physicians
who have privileges at its multiple facilities in Southeast Georgia with
a luncheon on both the Brunswick and Camden campuses.
“Even with a wide variety of specialties, the physicians at Southeast
System share one thing in common: their commitment to healing,” said
Michael D. Scherneck, president and CEO of Southeast Georgia Health System.
“This Doctors Day, I encourage the community to join me in thanking
our medical staff for their outstanding work and the compassionate care
they provide all year long.”
To honor the Brunswick Campus medical staff, the Health System made a $2,500
FaithWorks Ministries; the Camden Campus medical staff were honored through
a similar donation to the Camden House.
The first observance of Doctors Day was held March 30, 1933, and in 1990,
President George Bush officially designated March 30 as National Doctors Day.
