Happy Doctor’s Day!

Posted by Holly Allen on March 26, 2018 at 11:43 AM

Have you heard of National Doctor’s Day?  This national holiday took 58 years to become more than just a local holiday.  National Doctor’s Day is celebrated on March 30th in the United States and praises physicians for the work they do supporting their patients and their communities.  On this day, Epiphany would like to take a moment to thank each and every provider for their diligence to detail, timely diagnosis, and passion for the wellness of their patients who are our family.

Doctor gift.jpgThe first Doctor’s Day can be traced back to a small town in Georgia called Winder.  On March 30, 1933 Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a prominent Georgian doctor, wanted to create a day to recognize and honor doctors.  She mailed greeting cards to all of the doctors she knew and even placed flowers on the graves of deceased physicians. The flowers she placed on the graves of these doctors that are still used to celebrate National Doctor’s Day today are red carnations.

Even though this day was celebrated locally since 1933, it wasn’t a national holiday until Congress passed Proclamation 6253 in 1991.  March 30th was chosen because Dr. Crawford W. Long used an ether anesthetic for the first time on this day during surgery in 1842.

Epiphany would like thank the many providers who utilize Cardio Server on this special day.  We love hearing your feedback whether it be the ease of access from anywhere on any device including computers, tablets, or mobile devices or feedback regarding our features such as our advanced calipers.

We are happy to serve over 850 hospitals allowing providers to devote more time with their patients and less time on the clerical tasks.  Happy Doctor’s Day to each of you!

Patient Thanking Doctor

What is National Doctors’ Day?

Doctors’ Day originated in Winder, Georgia on March 30, 1933 when Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a doctor, decided to set aside a day for the honoring of physicians. Many people honored their doctors with greeting cards or placed flowers at the resting places of deceased doctors to show their appreciation for those who devoted themselves to the health of their communities.

In 1990, both the House of Representatives and the Senate overwhelmingly approved legislation designating March 30 as National Doctors’ Day. President George Bush signed the resolution, and in a statement, the president encouraged the honoring of groundbreaking physicians of the past, as well as those who “carry on the quiet work of healing each day in communities throughout the United States—indeed, throughout the world.”

How to Observe National Doctors’ Day

There a number of ways you can observe National Doctors’ Day, here are a few ideas: 

Just say thank you: The simplest way to honor the physicians in your life falls right in line with this year’s theme of “Thank You.” Simply send a card or email expressing thanks and appreciation the doctors in your life.

Flowers: Send your doctor flowers, or in the tradition of the first doctors’ day, you may want to place flowers at the grave of a doctor who has passed away. The red carnation has long been associated with National Doctors’ Day.

National Doctors’ Day Merchandise: There are a number of websites offering merchandise specific to National Doctors’ Day. Some items you might find include specialized greeting cards, lapel pins, and National Doctors’ Day t-shirts. 

Spread The Word: Share the news about National Doctors’ Day with friends, family and co-workers. Greater awareness equals greater participation. Sharing news articles or blog posts (such as this one) on social media platforms is a particularly effective way to get the word out. The more doctors we can honor this Saturday the better!

Epiphany recognizes our nation’s physicians for their dedication to the treatment and prevention of illness and injury as well as the contributions they make to the study of medicine. All of us have had our lives touched or improved by a doctor, be it through treatment, care, or medical advancements. This March 30, please remember to join us as we say “Thank You” in observance of National Doctors’ Day.
