March 31, 2011
St. Mary’s observes National Doctors’ Day, March 30, to formally show appreciation to the more than 300 physicians in private practice and employed by the hospital who compose the medical staff. Because of their expertise and dedication, St. Mary’s has built a reputation as a caring provider of quality healthcare.
“Modern healthcare is delivered by a team, and every patient care team includes at least one doctor,” says John Beeson, MD, chief medical officer and vice president for Medical Affairs.
Our community has become a national model of high-quality and cost-effective healthcare, Beeson says. “Our medical staff has played a major role in creating that collaborative image,” he says. “Every day and on National Doctors’ Day, we offer a sincere ‘thank you’ to the men and women who dedicate their lives to the practice of medicine, to life-long learning, and to the health of St. Mary’s patients and our community,” Beeson adds. “Your commitment to caring for the body, mind, and spirit inspires us all.”
