This morning it was my pleasure to join other hospital staff as we served breakfast to our physician staff in observance of National Doctors Day. It was a small gesture delivered with lots of love and appreciation.
We had over 25 of our medical staff come to the breakfast. They were treated to a sit-down (full service like a restaurant- they really appreciated that!) breakfast: Eggs Benedict or Eggs Florentine or bacon and eggs; home-style seasoned potatoes; fresh fruit; homemade granola with yogurt; homemade apricot or blueberry muffins; fresh squeezed orange juice & Thanksgiving coffee.
MCDH also thanked them with embroidered Medical Staff Polo shirts; Winesong! coffee mugs filled with chocolates and a nice thank you note from the Foundation.
Peaceful music performed by Janie Rezner- she sang and played her hand-made Ocarina.
It was a very nice way to express our appreciation for all the dedication and hard work of our medical staff.
These dedicated men and women are highly qualified physicians who have chosen to live in our wonderful rural community and practice medicine. They’re working every day to keep us healthy, and for this we are extremely grateful.
Of course we shouldn’t wait for National Doctors Day to say “Thank You.” It’s a sentiment I think about every day, and try to express often. Consider sending your doctor a note once in awhile, letting her or him know how much you appreciate their care. Or tell them in person at the end of your next visit. Like all of us, they appreciate an occasional “warm fuzzy.”
