The first Doctors’ Day observance was March 30, 1933 in Winder, Georgia, when Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to set aside a day to honor physicians. This first observance included mailing greeting cards and placing flowers on graves of deceased doctors. After legislation was introduced in 1990 in the United States House and Senate, President George Bush signed a resolution designating March 30, 1991 as “National Doctors’ Day”, now celebrated annually.
At University of Maryland Shore Regional Health, we celebrate physicians all across our five-county region who partner with us on a daily basis to provide quality medical care to the members of our local communities. The top-notch medical care provided by our area’s primary care physicians and various medical specialists makes this region a healthier place to live.
Please join us on March 30, National Doctors’ Day, as we salute the more than 300 members of our medical staffs and all our region’s physicians for their expertise, skill and compassion. The health and well-being of our region is better because they have chosen to live and practice here.
