March 29, 2007 - MMH Honors Physicians on Doctorsí Day


By Stephanie Johnson
Marietta Memorial Hospital is honoring members of its medical staff on Doctorsí Day for the hard work and dedication they give to the hospital and the community. Doctorsí Day is a national celebration that provides the opportunity to show appreciation for our outstanding physicians for the care they continually provide.

The first Doctorsí Day observance was March 30, 1933, in Winder, Ga. The idea came from Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Cha Almond, and the date was the anniversary of the first use of general anesthetic in surgery. (On March 30, 1842, Dr. Crawford Long of Barrow County, Ga., used ether to remove a tumor from a patientís neck.)

Marietta Memorial Hospital currently has 146 physicians on its staff and will be honoring them throughout the week.
