NEWPORT — Each year North Country Hospital provides a small gift to each member of the Medical Staff, honoring them for Doctor’s Day.
This year the Medical Staff Executive Committee suggested that instead of a gift an equal amount of money could be contributed to the med staff fund.
The fund in turn gives back to programs in the community and at the hospital.
In the United States, National Doctors’ Day is a day on which the service of physicians to the nation is recognized annually. The date chosen was the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery, on March 30, 1842.
