GREENVILLE, Oh,– HEARTLAND OF GREENVILLE is honoring March 30th, National Doctor’s Day. The annual celebration recognizes the importance of physicians and the numerous contributions they make to modern medicine.

The date of Doctor’s Day originates from the date widely considered to represent the discovery of anesthesia. On March 30, 1842, in Barrow County, Ga., Crawford B. Long, M.D., administered inhaled ether to a patient before removing a tumor. What originally was observed as a day honoring doctors in Georgia grew in to a national annual observance, including the customary red carnation as a symbol.

Today, HEARTLAND OF GREENVILLE is continuing the tradition by passing out carnations to the doctor’s that touch the lives of each of our patients.

Heartland of Greenville, located at 243 Marion Drive, Greenville Oh, is part of the HCR ManorCare family.
