Copley Hospital Recognizes Medical Community on Doctors Day

Copley Hospital will honor and celebrate its Medical Staff with a special breakfast served by hospital administrators on Wednesday, April 3 in recognition of National Doctors Day. The traditional day of recognition – March 30th – dates to the early 1930s, though it was officially commemorated by the U.S. House of Representatives in 1958. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed a proclamation calling on the people of the United States “to observe the day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.”

“National Doctors Day reminds us to take a moment to honor the dedication, skill, and commitment of our Doctors and Providers, who provide exceptional care to our communities,” said Copley Hospital President & CEO Joseph Woodin.

Copley’s Medical Staff consists of nearly seventy physicians who provide a wide range of medical and surgical specialties including cardiology, emergency medicine, family medicine, general surgery, gynecology, internal medicine, neurology, obstetrics, oncology, orthopeadics, pathology, podiatry, primary care, pulmonary, radiology and urology.

The April 3 breakfast will be prepared and served during the Medical Staff’s monthly meeting.
