National Doctors Day is on March 30th, giving the world a golden opportunity to honor all healthcare professionals for their dedication and contributions to the community. There is no denying the challenging and overwhelming nature of the medical industry, so this national day allows us to recognize these substantial achievements and what they mean to our society.
As an addiction treatment center, GateHouse Treatment holds a very special relationship with physicians and other healthcare providers. The nature of our industry directly calls for their close involvement, and this partnership is one we certainly don’t take for granted. In honor of National Doctors Day, GateHouse sends a lot of praise toward each doctor who makes a difference.
National Doctors Day Facts
In 1933, residents of Winder, Georgia, celebrated National Doctors Day for the first time by sending greeting cards and placing flowers (red carnations) on the graves of deceased doctors. Dr. Charles B. Almond conceived the idea for the day to honor physicians and settled with March 30th, the anniversary of the first successful use of anesthesia for surgery. In 1991, then-President George H.W. Bush finalized the efforts by making it a national day of celebration and gratitude.
The Significance of National Doctors Day for GateHouse Treatment
National Doctors Day means the world to GateHouse Treatment due to the significance of healthcare providers in our services. Reliably treating substance use disorders would not be possible without the help of physicians and their tireless dedication to serving others in times of need.
We take exceptional pride in our close connection with physicians and other professionals who help treat substance use disorders (SUDs). The delicate nature of this industry calls for a strong and well-established partnership between doctors and clinicians, and we wouldn’t be able to face this battle of addiction alone.
