HARLINGEN, Texas – Valley Baptist Health System in Harlingen was recognized as National Doctors’ Day on Monday. The day pays tribute to the hospital’s physicians for their service and compassion.
According to a release, this year’s national theme, “Thank you for the hope and leadership,” is truly appropriate during the COVID-19 pandemic. The group of physicians at Your Hospital are being honored virtually and in a socially distanced manner.
Celebrated on March 30th each year, Doctors’ Day was officially established in 1991 when President George H.W. Bush issued a proclamation in observance of the day. National Doctors’ Day is commonly celebrated in healthcare organizations, like Your Hospital, as a day to recognize the contributions of doctors to individual lives and communities, said the release.
