CMH physicians to be honored in observance of ‘Doctors Day’ March 31
The boards of directors, employees and volunteers of Citizens Memorial Hospital and Citizens Memorial Health Care Foundation (CMH) will honor physicians during a Doctors Day celebration on Monday, March 31 from 8 - 9 a.m. in the CMH Community Rooms.
The first Doctors Day observance was March 30, 1933, in Winder, Ga. The idea for the observance came from Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Cha Almond, and the date was the anniversary of the first use of general anesthetic in surgery. The day was created to pay tribute to physicians and their contribution to society.
Doctors Day became an official national holiday in 1990. Citizens Memorial Hospital continues to honor this tradition and the hard work and dedication of the CMH doctors.
“Please take time to thank your physician for the hard work and care they put into each individual patient,” said Donald J. Babb, CEO/Executive Director of CMH. “The CMH physicians pride themselves in being a part of your community.”
