Doctors’ Day is Tuesday, March 30, and over the last year, the doctors at Estes Park Health have worked hard to keep the community healthy and safe. From operating with limited supplies during the early days of the pandemic to working long hours to administer vaccines today, doctors and staff at Estes Park Health have gone above and beyond to ensure the safety of the residents and visitors to the Estes Valley.

Doctors’ Day was conceived by Eudora Brown Almond, a physician’s wife in Georgia. March 30th is the anniversary of the day that surgical anesthesia was first administered to a patient, and the first Doctors’ Day took place in 1933 when a few doctors’ wives put together a luncheon for physicians in Georgia. On March 30, 1958, the “Resolution Commemorating Doctors’ Day” was adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives, and, in 1991 Congress declared Doctors’ Day a national holiday.
