Say thank you to your doctor

On March 30 we celebrate National Doctors' Day—a day designated to thank doctors for their heroic compassion in our time of need. This is an opportunity to pause and recognize their tireless efforts and commitment to our health and the health of those important to us.

By honoring your doctor, you let them know their work is important to you, and you support them in providing excellent care to others in need.

Please take a moment to recognize your doctor for the compassion and expertise they showed you.


The first Doctors’ Day observance was March 30, 1933, in Winder, GA. The idea was proposed by Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, and the date was the anniversary of the first use of general anesthetic in surgery. 

The Barrow County (Georgia) Medical Society Auxiliary proclaimed the day “Doctors’ Day,” which was celebrated by mailing cards to physicians and their wives and by placing flowers on the graves of deceased doctors. The U.S. House of Representatives adopted a resolution commemorating Doctors’ Day on March 30, 1958. In 1990, the U.S. Congress overwhelmingly approved legislation establishing a National Doctors’ Day and President George H.W. Bush signed the resolution

The first National Doctors’ Day was celebrated on March 30, 1991. As we carry the tradition forward,
Dignity Health is fortunate to have some of the brightest and most caring physicians in the world.  Thank you to our team of physicians for providing our patients with the highest-quality care and compassion.
