Celebrate Doctor’s Day

Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.

Web Banner Advertising Doctors Day March 30, 2017Either by choice or by chance, we all have been profoundly touched by the compassion and professional care of a doctor. Whether it’s screenings, immunizations, surgery, or newborn deliveries, our doctors make a tremendous difference in the lives of countless patients each and every day.

National Doctor’s Day is held every year on March 30th in the United States. It is a day to celebrate the contribution of physicians who serve our country by caring for its citizens. We are privileged to have exceptional physicians and high caliber healthcare close to home.

While we recognize our doctors for their unwavering dedication in medicine, we too need to acknowledge them for their contributions to our community. Physicians are more than just doctors. They are parents, coaches, leaders, service and religious organization members, volunteers and neighbors. I am impressed with their pledge to health and well-being and for their overriding commitment to community service.

Portneuf has the tremendous opportunity and responsibility to provide support to our neighbors when they are going through some of the most vulnerable times in their lives. When there are tears, doctors are a shoulder. When there is pain, they are a medicine. When there is tragedy, they are hope.

On behalf of the entire leadership and staff at Portneuf Health Partners, thank you to the doctors for your unwavering dedication. Your talents, skills and compassion bring hope to our patients and their families, and I am truly grateful for your enduring commitment to care. It is amazing to see the healing that takes place within our community.
