Upstate celebrates National Doctors’ Day March 30
As part of its Grateful Patient and Family Program, the Upstate Foundation is celebrating its eighth National Doctors’ Day March 30 by inviting patients at Upstate University Hospital to pay tribute to their doctors for the exceptional and compassionate care physicians provide all year round.
Hundreds of patient tributes arrive each year honoring doctors who have made a difference in these patients’ lives. All of these letters are heartfelt and profound.
One such grateful patient is Louis Musa.
After months of intensive chemotherapy and radiation, Musa rang the bell in the Upstate Cancer Center–the signal that his last cancer treatment was finished.
“My team of doctors truly saved my life!” he exclaimed. “The team made me feel at ease with and confident in their recommendations. If it weren’t for my Upstate doctors, I wouldn’t be alive today.”
In addition to a celebratory banner and signage throughout both the downtown and community campuses, the Upstate Foundation staff and hospital administrators will be hand-delivering the hundreds of handwritten thank-you notes from grateful patients honoring their doctors. Deliveries will be conducted throughout the week.
