National Physicians’ Day (May 1st)
by Marcello Bernardo
There is not a day that goes by without our physicians going above and beyond to care for our patients and build a healthier community. In recognition of their commitment to patients and the entire health care system, National Physicians’ Day is celebrated on May 1st. This designated day for physicians provides an opportunity to appreciate the dedicated and compassionate care that physicians provide.
This year on National Physicians’ Day, we reflect on the work and sacrifices made by physicians and express our most sincere appreciation for the care they provide in normal and in extraordinary times. Our physicians have demonstrated exceptional skill and endless compassion towards others, even throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your professionalism, perseverance and the attention you have provided to countless patients during these demanding times. Thank you for your unwavering commitment to care, and your practice. Thank you for saving lives in our community and region; you are truly making a difference every day. Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre would like to sincerely thank every physician for all that they do and for helping us provide exceptional care for every patient, every time.
