Annual Physician Appreciation Day May 26th

to the editor,

Posted May 20, 2014

Is there a doctor in the house? Thankfully, in our community, there are several doctors providing health care in their clinics, in nursing homes, to patients at home and in the hospital.

For 10 years, a local community committee has been working to ensure that local physicians, and their staff, know they are appreciated and valued for the work they do. Originally created as a task force between the hospital and Town of New Tecumseth in 2001, the Alliston & Area Physician Recruitment Committee changed in 2004 to become a group of concerned community residents and businesses, area municipal councillors, and hospital representatives. Adjala-Tosorontio, Essa, Innisfil, New Tecumseth, and Stevenson Memorial Hospital provide the majority of the funding to the AAPRC.

The Alliston & Area Physician Recruitment Committee (AAPRC) promotes our communities to physicians as a place to "Practice, Play, and Prosper."

The AAPRC has been holding an annual Physician Appreciation Day since 2005 and was perhaps the second community in Ontario to do so. The date has been the last Monday in May, and this year is May 26.

We recognize the hard work of our local physicians, pouring time, energy, and their hearts in to the care of their patients, and we encourage all residents and businesses to express thanks to them for their efforts.

Local businesses, schools, churches, service clubs, and residents are asked to join the effort and acknowledge the work of our local physicians on Monday, May 26.

Keith White, Chair,
Alliston & Area Physician Recruitment Committee
