Diagnoses, surgeries, treatments and care — the number of ways doctors improve and save lives are innumerable. Since 1933, March 30 has been set aside as National Doctors Day to recognize the valuable contributions of physicians in the community. On Delmarva, patients at Peninsula Regional Medical Center often have excellent stories of how their own doctors have made a difference.
In addition to providing a special breakfast and lunch for its physicians on Doctors Day, PRMC is inviting community members whose lives have been changed by doctors to send an online thank-you to the physician of their choice. Throughout March, visit the Peninsula Regional Doctors Day site at www.peninsula.org/DoctorsDay. The site offers a space to share stories and gratitude; the notes will be delivered to the doctor selected.
