Happy Doctors' Day!

National Doctors' Day is held every year on March 30 and celebrates the contribution of physicians who serve our country by caring for its citizens.

The first Doctors’ Day observance was March 30, 1933, in Winder, Georgia. Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to set aside a day to honor physicians.

In 1990, legislation was introduced to establish a national Doctors’ Day. Following overwhelming approval by the United States Senate and the House of Representatives, on October 30, 1990, March 30 was officially designated as "National Doctor's Day."

Sincere thanks to all of our doctors for everything they do for Sentara Potomac Hospital and the community!
