HSHS St. Francis Hospital Recognizes Doctors through Special Tribute Program


National Doctors’ Day is a day to recognize active and retired physicians for the important role they play in helping patients, promoting overall health and their significant accomplishments. This day is observed annually March 30.

Kevin Seely, president and CEO at HSHS St. Francis Hospital said, “On National Doctors’ Day, we celebrate the talented physicians who faithfully serve our community. We say thank you to all the outstanding health care professionals who provide comfort and care to patients and their families each and every day throughout the year. We are grateful for their dedication to bringing our community together to achieve better health outcomes.”

The public has an opportunity to recognize doctors through a special tribute program sponsored by the HSHS St. Francis Foundation. This fundraising campaign allows individuals to recognize a special doctor who made a difference in their lives through donations to support critical programs and lifesaving specialties at St. Francis.

Paula Endress, director of philanthropy at St. Francis said, “This is a way for everyone to celebrate the talented physicians who faithfully serve our community. We want them to know how much they are valued, and your words are the most powerful source of encouragement. When you honor a physician in this way, your personal note will be presented to your doctor on Doctors’ Day. They also will be recognized on a special tribute page on the hospital’s website.”

She added, “There is no greater honor for a doctor than hearing firsthand from those whose lives they have touched. Your words of support are a powerful source of encouragement.”
