Docs, we owe you!

by Andrea Powell, HPCCR Marketing Manager

doctors day 2015I’m going to keep this short and sweet today, folks.  Today is all about doctors.  It’s their day, after all.  Yep, it’s National Doctors Day.

We have twelve (!) doctors on our staff at HPCCR.  They are not all full time, but they are 100% dedicated to our mission.  All the time.  As far as we’re concerned, every single one has majored in empathy and done a residency in compassion.

All of our doctors have a personal reason for being here. Some have made end-of-life care a life-long career.  Some have retired from previous careers and are finding a second turn here at HPCCR. Some have had personal experiences with hospice care or palliative medicine and decided that they wanted to be involved in some way.  But they all have one thing in common — a passion for helping patients at end of life.  Our physicians help ease the pain.  Their presence brings peace of mind to patients and their loved ones.

So we have one simple message today.  For our doctors and for doctors around the world.  Thank you for caring.  Thank you for your dedication to the fragile human beings who depend on you.  And thank you for relieving the world of at least some of its suffering.  We certainly owe you one. (Or ten. Well, definitely more than one. You know what we mean.)  Short and sweet, love you all.
