Faith Community Health System observes the special day annually on March 30.
JACKSBORO, Texas (March 30, 2023) – Medical providers are the cornerstone of every hospital and clinic, providing essential services to keep our communities healthy. To celebrate the fantastic work of our local medical community, Faith Community Health System (FCHS) is honoring all of our local healthcare providers on March 30 as part of a nationwide observance of National Doctors’ Day.
“The healthcare industry has changed significantly over the last few years, but one thing that has remained constant is the commitment of our local medical providers,” says Frank L. Beaman, CEO of FCHS. “Helping our patients through a myriad of conditions, the medical providers in our four County service region have never skipped a beat in treating and caring for our community.”
National Doctors’ Day was first inspired by the anniversary of the first use of anesthesia by Dr. Crawford W. Long in 1842, Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, proposed the celebration to show appreciation for doctors everywhere.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution in 1958 to commemorate the occasion. With congressional approval in 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed a resolution officially designating March 30 as National Doctors’ Day.
Healthcare providers at FCHS, which includes the hospital and four Faith Community Rural Health Clinics in the region, offer various healthcare services. Those who need healthcare do not have to travel out of the region. Local providers at FCHS specialize in multiple areas, including family practice, internal medicine, general surgery, orthopedics, obstetrics and gynecology, and endocrinology.
Many rural communities across Texas are without local healthcare services. Even more, rural areas with local hospitals and healthcare providers are seeing diminishing services or, even worse, their local hospital closing.
The 4 County region served by FCHS continues to thrive with the availability of convenient and comprehensive medical programs and services.
FCHS has a long history of serving the community, spanning over six decades. The regional healthcare provider has remained resilient by continually growing to meet local medical needs.
After years of planning and construction, the local healthcare system opened its main medical campus in late 2015. Since then, FCHS has been a showcase of what rural communities can accomplish through superior leadership, quality medical providers and unwavering community support.
In addition to family medicine, physicians offer medical services in various specialties at the hospital and four rural health clinics in Jacksboro, Bowie, Alvord, and Graham.
According to Beaman, the local medical community continues to thrive. The healthcare system continually monitors community needs and adjusts physician recruitment initiatives based on patient feedback and local medical trends.

“National Doctors’ Day is celebrated annually, but the professional work of our local providers is recognized each and every day,” Beaman adds. “So be sure to thank your medical provider during your next visit with them.”
