RPMH honors doctors on a special day

ill, doctors help us recover. Their expertise in helping to make Nolan County a healthier place is invaluable. In commemoration of National Doctor’s Day on March 30, Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital (RPMH) wants to recognize the doctors who dedicate their lives to ensure that we maintain the best health possible. “In our time of need, our doctors are there for us. They save lives, literally, on a daily basis,” said Donna Boatright, administrator of RPMH. “I always think of doctors as some of our community’s most prominent heroes.” National Doctor’s Day was first observed on March 30, 1933 when Eudora Brown Almond conceived the idea on the anniversary of the first administration of anesthesia by Dr. Crawford W. Long in 1842. With great approval by the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, President George Bush signed a resolution into law in 1990 designating March 30 as National Doctor’s Day. For more than 36 years, the doctors at RPMH have been providing comprehensive healthcare to families across the region. The hospital has a team of medical providers in many specialties that make it possible to stay local without the burden of travel. With convenient access and many amenities of a large metropolitan facility, RPMH is capable of treating your entire family. “In some ways, many of us owe our lives to the doctors who help us,” Boatright explained. “At your next appointment, be sure to take a moment to thank them for their expertise and time.” For more information on doctors and their specialties available at Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital, please contact us at 325-235-1701.
