Community Encouraged To Recognize Beloit Area Physicians National Doctor’s Day March 30


Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation and Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems need the help of the community in celebrating our appreciation for our local physicians.

National Doctors’ Day is held every year on March 30th to celebrate the physicians who serve our communities. This year MCRMF will be placing a message board at the hospital and Beloit Medical Clinic during the week of March 26th-30th encouraging community members to leave a special message of thanks to the physicians. Messages of thanks can also be mailed/emailed to the Foundation at the address below.

Physicians will then receive these thankful messages throughout the year. “We are taking this approach in a hope that we can express our thanks beyond just the one day of Doctor’s Day. Our physician’s support our community throughout the year so we would like to show our support and thanks throughout the year also,” says Stephanie Simmons, MCRMF Executive Director.

Additionally on Doctor’s Day the Foundation in partnership with MCHHS will recognize all local physicians with red carnations symbolizing the day to thank physicians for their commitment to health and our community.

If you are interested in sending a message of thanks, you can send it to: MCRMF, P.O. Box 65, Beloit KS or by email at
