Mimbres Memorial CEO Steve Westenhofer said one of the key factors in a strong and vibrant community is quality medical care.
He added that Mimbres Memorial Hospital’s physicians represent a broad range of medical expertise.
National Doctor’s Day was first observed on March 30th, 1933. It is celebrated annually to recognize the contributions of doctors around the country for their role in healing, patient safety, medical research and advances, and respect for human life and individual dignity.
March 30th also is significant among the medical community because it marks the anniversary of the first surgery using anesthesia.
Again, in recognition of National Doctor’s Day – March 30th, Saturday – Mimbres Memorial Hospital will be honoring its doctors this Friday.
