In Recognition of National Doctors’ Day—Thank You!

We are grateful to our doctors for the sacrifices they make and the care they give.”

March 25, 2015 - We would like to encourage all citizens of eastern Idaho to recognize the commitment, sacrifice, and hard work of their physicians on National Doctors’ Day. This national day of celebration each year falls on March 30th, and that’s why next Monday we’ll celebrate the essential role that our physicians serve in our community, reflect on the tremendous impact they have on our lives, and thank them for their contributions to our public health.

Medicine is a fascinating thing. More than just the application of science and technology, medicine includes a human element that makes being a doctor one of the most challenging, rewarding and important professions in the world. We depend on doctors to heal us, make us feel better and provide physical and mental comfort.

All those who serve as licensed physicians have engaged in years of study and training, often at great financial cost. Most endure long and unpredictable hours, and many must cope with the conflicting demands of a work- and family-life balance.

On Monday, please be sure to reach out and say thank you to your doctor. Even the smallest sign of gratitude, like sending a card or simple thank you note, can be extremely rewarding as it will help your physician keep perspective about why they have spent so much time and energy mastering their field of expertise.

We are always pleased to offer peace of mind to you and your family by providing the best healthcare possible, and we take great pride in recruiting some of the finest physicians in the nation to care for you. And so, we at Bingham Memorial Hospital stand together with the rest of America to say thank you and salute those healthcare professionals who have devoted their lives to the study and practice of medicine.

Thank you for the sacrifices you make and the care you give. Your knowledge and dedication make all our lives better.
