AV Hospital Celebrates “Doctors’ Day”

  • Posted On:

From trauma surgeries to heart attacks and every specialty in between, the talented doctors at Antelope Valley Medical Center save countless lives and improve the health of the Antelope Valley community every day. Each year, Doctors’ Day is celebrated at hospitals worldwide to thank doctors for making lives better. Here at Antelope Valley Medical Center, administrators, nurses and staff alike are applauding the medical center’s roster of 635 doctors across nearly 70 disciplines.

“Our doctors are dedicated to caring for our patients,” said AVMC Chief Executive Officer Michael Wall. “Antelope Valley Medical Center is home to a variety of world-class doctors, many of whom are on-call at all hours of the day. We thank our doctors for the stellar work they do, the compassion they feel for their patients and their devotion to providing quality healthcare to residents of the Antelope Valley.”

Patients and visitors at the hospital can show their appreciation by simply saying, “Thank you.” Since its inception in 1933, Doctors’ Day continues to be a day set aside to thank doctors who have spent years studying their specialty and who work long, unpredictable hours. President George Bush issued a proclamation in observance of National Doctors’ Day in 1991.

“I have worked with many of the doctors here at Antelope Valley Medical Center for more than 35 years and have seen first-hand their commitment to medical excellence,” said Chief Medical Officer Dr. Satya Dandamudi. “My fellow doctors are dedication to providing the best care to all of the Antelope Valley.”
