A celebration of National Doctors’ Day (March 30) offered MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital a chance to thank its dedicated medical staff.

A special breakfast was held March 29 at the hospital in Leonardtown, MD, to celebrate the many dedicated physicians, physician’s assistants, and certified nurse practitioners making a difference in the community.
