Recognize, appreciate doctors for service

Friday, March 30 is recognized as National Doctor’s Day, a special day that is set aside each year to commemorate the more than 950,000 physicians in the United States for their strong commitment to the health and wellbeing of our nation’s patients.

In celebration of National Doctors’ Day on Friday, and on behalf of Mercy Hospital, I would like to publicly recognize and thank all local physicians for their dedication and compassion in caring for the health care needs of individuals and families in our region.

Mercy Hospital is blessed with an exceptional medical staff who offer expertise in a wide variety of medical specialties. Working in partnership with the many talented referring physicians throughout the region, they bring world class care to the people who live, work and play in northern Michigan.

We are fortunate and honored that these highly credentialed and experienced physicians have chosen our community as a place to live and work; this allows our patients to experience exceptional care while remaining close to home for nearly all of their medical needs.

Each one of us, our friends or our family, either by choice or by chance has been profoundly touched and our lives improved by a physician’s compassionate and professional care. Our physicians are committed to our good health and well-being and for this we are grateful.

Please join me in recognizing and appreciating our local physicians for their commitment to quality care and for the tremendous service they provide to our communities.

Stephanie Riemer-Matuzak

Chief Executive Officer
