Celebrating National Doctors' Day

Today, Mount Nittany Health celebrates doctors. National Doctors’ Day, held March 30 each year, is a special opportunity for healthcare organizations, patients, and colleagues alike to thank physicians for their dedication in keeping us healthy.

At Mount Nittany Health, we’re recognizing the more than 250 credentialed physicians who provide high quality care to our region’s residents. Within Mount Nittany Physician Group—one of the largest multispecialty groups in the area—we’re celebrating the more than 70 physicians who provide care throughout 20 specialties and 15 locations.

Each year, The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center hosts an annual Doctors’ Day Appeal, encouraging individuals to respond with a tribute gift recognizing their physician. Last year, the average gift to this appeal was just over $116, with donors designating funds to the programs of their choice, but ultimately advancing care at Mount Nittany Medical Center.

While these special men and women deserve recognition every day, all are encouraged to take an extra moment on March 30 to thank a physician. For those interested in paying tribute to a physician in celebration of Doctors’ Day—or anytime during the year—through a gift to The Foundation, please contact The Foundation office at 814.234.6777.

The Foundation’s 21st Annual Golf Tournament raised $150,000 for the new Cancer Center.
