Southeast Georgia Health System To Honor Physicians: National Doctor's Day - March 30, 2009

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.
