National Doctors’ Day

March 30th marks the annual observation of National Doctors Day.  This day was established to recognize physicians, their work and their contributions to society and the community.  On National Doctors Day, we all have the opportunity to say “thank you” to our physicians for all that they do for us and our loved ones.

Your Doctors’ Day contribution honors the physicians who have touched your life in a meaningful way.  At the same time, it supports the efforts of United Regional by helping to assure all patients continue to have access to comprehensive, leading-edge health care resources, and that all physicians will have the best facilities and technologies with which to work.Donate button


Doctors’ Day can be traced back to March 30, 1933 when first observed in Winder, Georgia. It was originally started by Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a prominent Georgian doctor, who wanted to create a day just for recognizing and honoring doctors. 

Ms. Almond choose March 30th as the date for Doctor’s Day because that day is when Dr. Crawford W. Long used an ether anesthetic for the first time during surgery in 1842. Doctor’s Day became an actual National holiday in 1991 when Congress passed Proclamation 6253.
