It's National Doctor's Day

If you see a doctor today, go ahead and shake his/her hand because today is National Doctor's Day. Sheridan Memorial Hospital is celebrating today, March 30, says Cecil Pattison, community relations director at Sheridan Memorial.

Today they “honor physicians who have dedicated their professional lives to providing excellent patient care in our community in various ways.”

Hospital volunteers also offer a breakfast this morning to honor physicians. Pattison said there are 50 active medical staff physicians at Sheridan Memorial Hospital, but that doesn't include the many more consulting staff and doctors who come from other offices out of town.
