Morrisville – On March 30th our nation celebrates National Doctors’ Day. For more than 80 years, Copley’s physicians have been caring for our community; providing expert care in the prevention and treatment of illness and injury, diagnosis of diseases, and that of welcoming newborns into the world. On March 30th, and all year long, we extend special thanks to the more than 60 physicians who provide a variety of medical and surgical care to our community.
National Doctors’ Day was officially signed into U.S. law in the early 1990s by President George Bush. History of this honorary day dates back to the early 1930s when Eudora Brown of Georgia, a wife of a physician, set aside March 30th as a day to honor physicians. In 1958, the U.S. House of Representatives adopted a resolution commemorating Doctors’ Day. In 1990, President George Bush signed S.J. RES #366, designating March 30th as “National Doctors’ Day.”
If you have a favorite doctor who has gone above and beyond for you or a family member, there are a number of ways you can show your appreciation. You can make an online donation to Copley Hospital’s Charitable Care program to honor your doctor at www.copleyvt.org/support-copley/give-to-copley/.
