Doctors' Day donation honors physicians

April 03, 2015

Doug Koekkoek, M.D., chief executive, clinical services

We began the week by remembering Doctors’ Day and honoring all the ways physicians serve our patients, families and communities. By now I hope you’ve seen the messages from Dave Underriner, our chief executive in Oregon, and Rod Hochman, M.D., our president and CEO. Now it’s my privilege to tell you that once again, we are honoring our physicians by making a significant contribution to The Foundation for Medical Excellence. The foundation’s mission is to promote excellence in medicine, and our contribution will help fund the foundation’s medical scholars program and a range of professional development opportunities.

We are grateful for the opportunity to recognize you in this way. TFME’s programs help make a positive difference in the lives of physicians and clinicians across the Northwest – just as the work you do makes a positive difference every day here at Providence.
