– Twin Cities Community Hospital celebrated National Doctors’ Day on Wednesday by paying tribute to physicians for their service, skill, and compassion. Across Tenet Health Central Coast, the theme of “Thank you for Always Being There,” depicts a collective sentiment of deep appreciation for the outstanding group of physicians who care for the community.
“Over this past year our physicians have led the way for enhancement of services, including but not limited to, our unique relationship with UC San Francisco for neurosurgical care, the County’s first Trans Carotid Revascularization (TCAR) surgery, the first Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion (OLIF) surgery, the latest technology for our NICU and much more,” said Mark Lisa, CEO of Tenet Health Central Coast. “Looking ahead to April, we will soon have the county’s first Ion Robotic Bronchoscopy capabilities for minimally invasive biopsies. These types of advances energize Tenet Health Central Coast as we continue to support the expansion of specialty care for our community.”
Celebrated on March 30 each year, Doctors’ Day was officially established in 1991. March 30 also marks the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery by Dr. Crawford W. Long in 1842. National Doctors’ Day is commonly celebrated in healthcare organizations, as a day to recognize the contributions of doctors to individual lives and communities.
