Following a long year of treating COVID-19 and other hardships, the Los Alamitos Medical Center took time, like other institutions around the country, to honor physicians and other medical professionals as they celebrated “Doctor’s Day” March 30. The medical staff got a tasty treat from In-N-Out Burger, as the mobile burger truck pulled up and served delicious meals to the doctors and other medical staff to commemorate the special day.
“This past year has been a testament to the courage, perseverance, and selflessness of our doctors. We appreciate and are humbled by the sacrifices our doctors continue to make, said Kent Clayton, CEO of Los Alamitos Medical Center. “Thank you for your dedication to our patients and for embodying our mission to provide quality, compassionate care in the communities we serve,” he said.
Clayton said during this past year, “we have seen our doctors’ commitment to continuous improvement. With their skills, we have launched new services and procedures for patients in need, established more effective care protocols, and increased ambulatory access to continue to meet community needs. They taught us how to adapt to the constraints imposed by the pandemic and brought us many clinical innovations to improve patient care.”
