COLTON>> On Thursday, March 30, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center recognized roughly 400 physicians and 150 resident physicians in honor of National Doctors’ Day. The doctors were invited to have breakfast and coffee with administrators and medical office staff. Additionally, ARMC’s leadership teams made rounds throughout the day to deliver mugs and coffee to physicians in the hospital. They also brought mugs and coffee to working physicians at the three Family Health Centers located off-site, on Friday March 31. Doctors' Day serves as a day to recognize the contributions of physicians to individual lives and communities. In 1990, President George Bush signed into law a Joint Resolution of Congress establishing March 30 as ‘National Doctors' Day,’ setting aside a special day to express gratitude to physicians for their compassion in ministering to the sick, promoting good health and the advancement of medical knowledge. “This day is an opportunity to recognize the hard work and dedication that our physicians demonstrate throughout the year, playing a vital role in the overall health of our community,” Hospital Director William Gilbert said. “We applaud their commitment to excellence and their professional dedication and care of ARMC’s patients every day.” ARMC is a 456-bed university-affiliated teaching hospital licensed by the State of California Department of Public Health, operated by the County of San Bernardino, and governed by the Board of Supervisors. The hospital, located on a 70-acre campus in Colton, California, operates a regional burn center, level II trauma center, primary stroke center, a behavioral health center, four primary care centers including three family health centers, and provides more than 40 outpatient specialty care services.
