Statement by Premier King on National Physicians Day
Premier Dennis King has issued the following statement recognizing National Physicians Day:
“Today, on National Physicians Day, we take the time to recognize the extraordinary and talented team of physicians across our province and around Canada who have chosen a profession of healing and caring for others.
This year in particular, we find ourselves looking to physicians like Dr. Heather Morrison and so many others on the frontline for leadership and comfort as we navigate our response to COVID-19 during these unprecedented times. Every day, physicians provide care to Islanders in our hospitals, primary care offices and centres, and laboratories. They are our unsung heroes whose contributions to the health and well-being of Islanders is immeasurable and invaluable.
We are grateful for those who have chosen this profession and for those who are now pursuing this as their calling.
On behalf of Islanders, I wanted to extend my sincere appreciation to all of our physicians who continue to put the needs of their patients above their own.”
