Healer. Detective. Adviser. Confidante. Comforter. These are among the many roles that doctors fulfill each day as they care for patients and their families. Whether it is in a hospital, a clinic, or a long-term care facility, doctors work tirelessly to make sure patients get the care they need.

On March 30, healthcare organizations will celebrate National Doctors’ Day. First observed in Winder, Georgia in 1933, Doctors’ Day honors the contributions physicians make to communities across the country. We, at MountainView, are proud to honor the work of more than 265 primary care physicians and specialists on our medical staff.

Caring for the sick and maintaining good health for those who are well requires teamwork of the highest level, and doctors are at the core of this relationship. We work closely with the physicians on our medical staff to deliver quality, personalized care to each patient. Having physicians who share this commitment and our mission to deliver high-quality care is important to us, and we’re fortunate that members of our medical staff embrace these beliefs.

Physicians are central to the quality of care their patients receive on a daily basis, and act as the stewards of quality care in our communities. We’re committed to making sure the community has access to the healthcare services it needs. That’s why recruiting and retaining talented physicians and surgeons to our community is a top priority. No matter the discipline or the need, MountainView remains steadfast in its commitment to bring top quality physicians to Southern New Mexico to provide the best possible services to our patients.

We also appreciate those physicians who have served as the foundation of our medical staff over the years, and who have committed their time and expertise to act as the driving force behind quality medical services at MountainView.

And so, as MountainView celebrates Doctors’ Day, we recognize all the doctors in the community for their contributions, and we say a special thank you to the members of our medical staff for their dedication to our patients and our community.
