by Ann C. Gilpin, Oswego Health President and CEO
Oswego Health will recognize its dedicated, knowledgeable and caring physicians as our healthcare system celebrates Doctor’s Day March 29.
Oswego Health has more than 190 physicians in 35 specialties that provide excellent healthcare throughout Oswego County and beyond.
In the last two years, our very successful physician recruitment has resulted in our health system welcoming 17 new doctors to our community.
We are very fortunate to have such a devoted group of medical professionals providing healthcare in our community.
Oswego Health expects to welcome even more physicians this year.
In developing our new strategic plan, which will help lead the direction of the health system over the next three years, we continued to acknowledge the essential role physicians play in our community and identified physician retention and recruitment as one of our top goals.
While our physicians do keep us healthy, they are vital to our community in other important endeavors.
They are often active volunteers in the community, donating their time and expertise to many local organizations that improve our quality of life.
In closing, I hope you will join me in thanking our physicians for their care and contribution to our community on Doctor’s Day.
