Celebrating and Honoring Valley’s Physicians & Advanced Care Providers!

Celebrating and Honoring Valley’s Physicians & Advanced Care Providers!

On National Doctors’ Day, celebrated each year on March 30, we honor the dedication and contributions of physicians and advanced care professionals as they positively impact their patients. We thank these healthcare providers for all that they do for us and our loved ones, as well as our greater community. Despite the many professional and personal challenges they have faced to provide care throughout the pandemic, we are especially grateful for their steadfast and reliable service during the last two years. Caring for our community like family has never meant more or been more evident.

    I admire and support doctors everywhere, even more so after the last 2 years. However I am puzzled as to why you lump together “providers” for Doctors Day. There is a separate day (in fact I think a week) to recognize PAs and ARNP. Doctors have put in YEARS of education and training and should get their recognition distinct from “providers”. Give Doctors their day.

      Thank you for your comment and we’re glad to know that you recognize the hard work and dedication of doctors, particularly after the increased demands and risks associated with the COVID pandemic. Here at Valley, we try to find opportunities to recognize all of our caregivers, including our healthcare providers, when there are national days and weeks identified for professional group recognition. Many of our nurse practitioners have doctorate degrees (DNP) so we wanted to make sure that we extended our recognition to them on Doctors’ Day, along with our physicians.
