Thanks to the doctors for the inspiration and care they give

National Doctors’ Day is held every year on March 30 in the United States to celebrate the contribution of physicians who serve our country by caring for its citizens. This year, March 30 falls on a Saturday.

I would like to take this opportunity, on or before National Doctors’ Day, to honor all of the physicians serving the patients and residents of Golden Living Center of Cumberland.

We are truly appreciative of their commitment and the leadership they demonstrate every day in meeting the healthcare needs of our patients, their families and our staff.

The work that physicians do in our living center can sometimes be overlooked but these physicians are a core part of the care that Golden Living delivers to this community.

Successfully taking care of an Alzheimer’s patient, monitoring patients with complex health conditions, or caring for individuals with end-stage cancer on a day-to-day basis rarely makes headlines.

But for many physicians in our community, it is the inspiration of seeing the positive difference that they make in the quality of life for our patients and residents that makes their long hours of dedication worthwhile.

In particular, I would like to thank our medical director, Dr Peter Halmos, and our assistant medical director, Dr. Sunil Gupta, as well as Dr. Huma Shakil and Dr. Shiv Khanna, for the vital role they play in advocating for our patients and promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Please join me in recognizing and thanking these unsung heroes for all that they do.

Mary Schriver, executive director

Golden Living Center of Cumberland

  • President and Obamacare: Who needs Congress?

    Being a fellow from a small town like Cumberland I don’t always really understand what’s going on in Washington. But I have watched a few houses being built over the years. I even helped some with one house, but my brother fired me from that work pretty quickly, mainly because it was his house being built.

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.
