Today is National Doctors' Day - the day we reflect on the many contributions made by our physicians. I want to thank all the doctors on the GBMC medical staff who work extremely hard to care for patients as they would want their own loved ones cared for. We have a wonderful medical staff who give of themselves and make a tremendous difference in the lives of patients every day. I am glad that at least one day a year we reach out and thank physicians for what they do all year.
To celebrate Doctors' Day at GBMC, we had a Buffet Breakfast-to-Go earlier this morning, and physicians in attendance were given an air refresher for their car and a FREE car wash as a token of our gratitude. Physicians who were not in attendance can order a gift card for the car wash, until Saturday, Apr. 15, by visiting www.gbmc.org/docsdaycarwash. Later this afternoon, we are holding an ice cream social in the physicians’ lounge as another way to show our appreciation for all that they do.
The superior care provided by our medical staff, is certainly evident in the more than 120 GBMC physicians, in 74 unique specialties, who were recognized in Baltimore magazine’s 2016 Top Doctor’s list. This recognition also demonstrates just how good they are since the award comes from the votes of their peers.
I’ve been so blessed to work with so many outstanding physician colleagues over the years. I have valued their insights on our community’s health needs, their candor and innovation in finding workable solutions, and their commitment to improving the health and well-being of all we serve. So, in tribute to our physicians, I thought it fitting that we share the following video:
While as a nation we are experiencing challenging times in health care, the medical staff at GBMC remains committed to our vision.
So, to all of our physicians, we say thank you! In honor of Doctors' Day and your physician, please share your thoughts and inspiring stories of patient care here…
