ARMC Honors Physicians on National Doctors Day

ARMC Honors Physicians on National Doctors Day

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) celebrates National Doctors Day, a significant occasion dedicated to recognizing the exceptional commitment and care provided by physicians across the country. Observed every March 30, this day offers a moment to pause and appreciate the pivotal role that doctors fulfill in maintaining and enhancing the health of their local communities.

At ARMC and in San Bernardino County, the dedication of these professionals is evident every day as they provide critical care across a spectrum of medical environments. National Doctors Day transcends organizational affiliations, serving as an homage to the medical professionals’ commitment to advancing patient health. The expertise, compassion, and tireless effort of these physicians significantly impacts ARMC’s ability to contribute to “The Heart of a Healthy Community™.”

In honor of National Doctors Day, ARMC is hosting a week of activities to recognize its roughly 400 physicians and more than 200 resident physicians across the hospital and off-site clinics. Breakfast will be served throughout the week for physicians at each location and a photobooth will be set up in the main lobby of the hospital for physicians to celebrate with their colleagues.

“We invite our staff, patients, and the community to express their gratitude towards our physicians. Their unwavering dedication and service are the backbone of our health care delivery, ensuring our community’s health and well-being. Let’s make National Doctors Day a memorable occasion, acknowledging the invaluable role of physicians in our lives,” stated John H. Brill, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at ARMC.
