Hurley celebrating Doctor’s Day

The Hurley family will salutes the more than 500 doctors and resident physicians in our community for their commitment to quality patient care and for dedicating their lives to help others live healthier lives. Doctor’s Day is celebrated nationwide on March 30. The first was held in 1933 in Winder, Georgia, started by a doctor’s wife.
On March 30, 1958, the United States House of Representatives adopted a Resolution Commemorating Doctors’ Day. In 1990, legislation was introduced in the House and Senate to establish a national Doctor’s Day. Following overwhelming approval by the United States Senate and the House of Representatives, on October 30, 1990, President George Bush signed S.J. RES. #366 (which became Public Law 101-473) officially designating March 30 as “National Doctor’s Day.” – R.S.
