In celebration of National Doctors’ Day on Wednesday, Kosciusko Community Hospital honored its medical staff by donating to one of their favorite local charities.

The day is set aside to recognize physicians for their skills, sacrifice and service to the community. But true to their ongoing care and compassion toward others, according to a news release from Lutheran Health Network, KCH physicians decided to select a community organization to receive a donation in lieu of tokens of gratitude the hospital typically provides them in honor of Doctors’ Day.

“We are grateful to the doctors on our medical staff for the steadfast care provided to the patients we treat,” said Jae Dale, chief executive officer for KCH. “It is humbling to once again see them give back to the region we serve as we seek to honor them on National Doctors’ Day.”

The Kosciusko County Jail Chemical Addiction Program was chosen as the recipient of this year’s Doctors’ Day donation.
