Champion of Care pinMore than 250 Fairview caregivers were recognized by grateful patients as part of Fairview’s 2014 Doctors’ Day celebration.

Observed on March 30, this national holiday celebrates the contributions physicians make to our patients and our communities. Grateful Fairview patients donated on behalf of their caregivers through Fairview Foundation’s Champions of Care program.

“These special Champions of Care gifts recognize and celebrate the incredible care provided by our caregivers as they save lives, change lives and improve health in the communities that we serve,” says Richard J. Howard, president of Fairview Foundation.

“And, every donation made through the Champions of Care program helps build the future of health care in Minnesota and beyond.”

Physicians recognized in our Doctors’ Day celebration receive a custom-crafted pin, a note of appreciation and public recognition in our Honor Roll.

As recognitions that only a patient can award, these Champion of Care honors are the ultimate patient “seal of approval” and our doctors wear their lapel pins with obvious pride. Check our 2014 Doctors’ Day Honor Roll to see who was honored.
