Celebrating National Doctor's Day
March 30, 2017
March 30th marks the annual observation of National Doctor’s Day. This day was established by Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of Dr. Charles Almond. The first celebration included mailed cards and flowers at gravesides of past doctors. The red carnation has come to be the symbol of the Doctor’s Day observance.
Today we recognize our physicians at Wood County Hospital, their work and their contributions to society and the community. We say “thank you” for all that they do for us and our loved ones. Wood County hospital has over 35 specialties and over 220 physicians on staff.
“This day of special recognition gives us an opportunity to thank our physician for the dedication and hard work on behalf of patients, our community and Wood County Hospital. We are fortunate to have such an excellent medical staff, which has resulted in our ability to offer patients high-quality healthcare services they can depend on.” –Stanley R. Korducki, President of Wood County Hospital
Healthcare today is more complex than ever. With more advancements, tools and information at their fingertips doctors have an overwhelming job to diagnose and treat their patients every day. We strive to make every Doctor’s Day a memorable day for our physicians. We hope you will take time to say thank you to a doctor today!
