National Doctors' Day
More than 812 of our patients participated in the March 30 celebration of Doctors’ Day by honoring 376 physicians at Jefferson Health! By honoring the care your physician provides you with a donation, you are supporting Jefferson Health in our mission to create a healthier tomorrow for all of those we serve.
Patients like Jane Karatzas, who is celebrating five years of being cancer free and says, “If it wasn’t for my Jefferson doctors, I wouldn’t be here today!” See Jane's story below.
Although the national celebration of Doctors’ Day has passed, at Jefferson we celebrate our caring physicians year-round—and you can, too. Donations are always welcome, and can be made any time. Your generosity helps us better serve all of our patients.
Thank you for recognizing the following Jefferson Health physicians and caregivers:

Jane is a concert pianist, opera singer—and cancer survivor. “If it was not for my Jefferson doctors, I would not be here today.”
“Whenever I walked in, I felt like I was with family,” Jason says. “They were so nurturing, so caring—not just to Kylie, but to us, too.”
“It was scary, but some of the conversations I had with the doctors were so open and hopeful, we’d actually be laughing.”
