A day to honor our doctors – who help others every day

Health care is always changing, brought on by scientific breakthroughs, technological advancements, government regulation and reform.

Health care is always changing, brought on by scientific breakthroughs, technological advancements, government regulation and reform.

But there is one constant: physicians still shoulder the ultimate responsibility for a patient’s care whether it be in the emergency room, on the operating table or in a clinic.

From the days of Hippocrates, doctors held the fate of their fellow human beings in their hands – and certainly in their hearts.

It’s why we pause on National Doctors’ Day each year to thank the men and women who made the decision to travel down that long road to becoming a physician.

We at Easton Hospital are grateful for more than 220 members of the active medical staff who work in our hospitals, centers and practice offices.

We celebrate and honor their commitment to their field, patients and community.

Be it a primary-care doctor fresh out of residency or a veteran surgeon who continues to hone skills by adopting the latest technology, we thank you.

It is so easy to marvel at the almost miraculous life-saving tools that medicine employs. And just as easy to become frustrated with medicine when chronic disease, terminal illness and horrific accidents win the battle over the doctor’s most drastic life-saving measures.

It is too easy to forget that the physician – the healer, the comforter, the saver of lives – is a human. And as a human, each is mired in the complexity of life.

The doctor who was triumphant in making a diagnosis in a perplexing case has to deliver the grim prognosis to the patient and his family.
