March 28, 2020 – On March 30, hospitals and medical offices around
the nation will celebrate National Doctors’ Day by paying tribute
to the physicians that impact our lives. Through their actions, whether
it be an encouraging word, kind bedside gesture or a life-saving procedure,
doctors make a difference each and every day.
More than 300 physicians have medical staff privileges at Southeast Georgia
Health System. To honor the
Brunswick Campus medical staff, the Health System made a $2,500 donation to the AJ Donohue Foundation; the
Camden Campus medical staff were similarly honored through a donation to the Coastal Counseling Center.
The community can choose to honor physicians with a gift to the Southeast
Georgia Health System
Foundation. Donations will be restricted for the 20-20 Vision Campaign and physicians
being honored will be notified of the contribution in their name. To contribute
call the Foundation at 912-466-3360 or give online at
Conceived by Eudora Brown Almond, wife of physician Charles B. Almond,
M.D., Doctors’ Day was originally observed on March 30, 1933, to
recognize physicians, their work and their contributions to society and
the communities they serve. In 1990, President George Bush officially
designated March 30 as National Doctors’ Day.
