Letter to the editor | Salute to local doctors

March 22, 2014 

In celebration of National Doctors’ Day, March 30, we would like to publicly recognize and thank all local physicians for their skill and compassion in caring for the medical needs of individuals and families in the region.

The physicians in our region chose the honorable profession of medicine because of the desire to heal patients, improve their health and ultimately impact their lives in a positive and meaningful way. Their many contributions to ensuring high quality and compassionate health care are highlighted each and every day in the care they provide to all patients.

We are proud of their pledge to diagnose and treat patients, and in their daily efforts to improve the health of the millions of people they serve.

Wherever you receive your medical care, please join with us in recognizing and saluting all local physicians for the tremendous work they do on behalf of the people of central Pennsylvania.
