(3/21/12) - On Friday, March 30, McLeod Loris Seacoast along with healthcare organizations across the nation will observe National Doctorâ€™s Day, a time set aside each year to thank physicians for the many contributions they bring to our local communities.
On March 30, 1958, a resolution commemorating Doctorâ€™s Day was adopted by the US House of Representatives, and in 1990 legislation was introduced in the House and Senate to establish a national Doctorâ€™s Day. Following overwhelming approval by the House and Senate, on October 30, 1990, President George Bush signed a resolution designating March 30th as National Doctorâ€™s Day.
â€śOur healthcare system has benefited over the years by a very competent and stable medical staff. A key component to our success has been our physicians,â€ť stated James Craigie, MD, vice president of medical affairs. â€śWe are proud of them and the legacy of care they have provided.â€ť
