On March 30th, the Jackson Parish Hospital celebrated “National Doctor’s Day,” which is an annual observance aimed at appreciating physicians who help save our lives everywhere, by honoring their doctor’s on staff: Sheila Mariano, William J. Slusher, Rebecca Crouch and Paula Parkerson.
“We would like to thank our physicians for all they do in sharing their skills and expertise, their care and compassion, and for making a difference each and every day. We appreciate each of you!” – John Morgan, CEO of Jackson Parish Hospital.
The holiday first started in 1933 in Winder, Georgia, and since then it’s been honored every year on March 30 which was the first anniversary of a doctor using ether anesthesia by Dr. Crawford W. Long. Today we continue to celebrate medical advances like these and thank all doctors everywhere who’ve spent so much time and energy mastering their field of expertise.
