HUNTINGTON— As part of St. Mary’s celebration of National Doctors’ Day Saturday, March 30, the medical center has made a donation of $5,000 to the Huntington City Mission on behalf of all doctors who serve patients at St. Mary’s.

“We are so grateful for the dedication and compassion our physicians show our patients and so it is a privilege to make this donation in each of their names to an organization that is doing such important work in our community,” said Lee Taylor, MD, vice president of medical affairs at St. Mary’s.

“The Huntington City Mission has been serving our community for many years by providing for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the homeless in Huntington,” said Thomas M. Jung, MD, PhD, president of St. Mary’s medical staff. “Their efforts are incredibly valuable and so we truly appreciate St. Mary’s honoring physicians with this gift.”

National Doctors’ Day was established in 1990 as a day to celebrate the contributions of physicians who serve our country by caring for its citizens.
