Bayhealth Celebrates National Doctors’ Day


On March 30 Bayhealth Medial Center planned celebrations at Bayhealth Milford Memorial and Bayhealth Kent General  to honor their dedicated doctors. National Doctors’ Day is held every year across  the United States as a way to celebrate the contribution of physicians who serve the country by caring for its citizens. The first Doctor’s Day observance was March 30, 1933 in Winder, GA as  Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to set aside a day to honor physicians. This first observance included the mailing greeting cards and placing flowers on graves of deceased doctors. Resolution Commemorating Doctors’ Day was adopted by the United States House of Representatives on March 30, 1958. In 1990, legislation was introduced in the House and Senate to establish a national Doctor’s Day. Following approval by the United States Senate and the House of Representatives, on October 30, 1990, President George Bush signed into law a bill designating March 30th as “National Doctor’s Day.”
