Medical staff honored on Doctors' Day, March 30

Dedicated to saving lives, improving health and quality of life and teaching tomorrow’s health professionals, our Shands HealthCare medical staff of University of Florida faculty and community physicians deserve our appreciation.

Doctors dedicate long hours to excellent care, extensive research and leading-edge training that help make Shands HealthCare one of the nation’s most respected health systems.
