Each day, the doctors at Graham Regional Medical Center go to work to make the community a healthier place. In commemoration of National Doctor’s Day on March 30, Graham Regional wants to recognize the doctors and physicians who dedicate their lives to ensure the people of our community are in the best health possible.
“The physicians who serve our community are truly heroes,” said Steve Hartgraves, chief executive officer of Graham Regional. “These men and women dedicate their lives to the practice of medicine, and our community continues to thrive as a result.”
National Doctors Day was first observed on March 30, 1933 when Eudora Brown Almond conceived the idea on the anniversary of the first administration of anesthesia by Dr. Crawford W. Long in 1842. With great approval by the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, President George Bush signed a resolution into law in 1990 designating March 30 as National Doctor’s Day.
“Our doctors do so much to keep us healthy,” said Hartgraves. “The next time you leave from your next appointment, be sure to thank your physician for their expertise and time.”
