Spartanburg Regional Foundation Helps Patients Honor Doctors

Celebrated on March 30, Doctor’s Day allows patients and families to make a gift to the Spartanburg Regional Foundation in a physician’s honor to thank them for their care.  A national holiday, Doctor’s Day was created to celebrate the contribution of physicians who serve the nation.

“Many of us have a special relationship with one or more of our physicians,” said Kristy Caradori, Executive Director of the Spartanburg Regional Foundation. “Doctor’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to honor those special physicians and say thank you.”

More than 170 Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System doctors receive recognition each year.

“People who have faced big health challenges feel warmly towards their physicians and want to let them know,” said Jane Ovenden, Spartanburg Regional Foundation Director of Operations. “Many physicians are very honored to receive the recognition and will call the patient directly to thank them.”

When a physician is notified, they are honored with a gift and the donation is used to improve the health and wellness of their community.

“Sometimes we don’t take enough time to really say thank you,” said Director of Philanthropy Shelly Sinclair. “Doctor’s Day gives patients and their family members a chance to thank doctors who may have saved their life or improved their overall health.”
