PHOENIX — In honor of National Doctors’ Day, March 30, TriWest is encouraging service members and their families to say thanks to the Tricare doctors who’ve made a positive difference in their lives by visiting www.triwest.com/DrDay or the Facebook page, “Salute Your TRICARE Doctor 2010.” TriWest is accepting submissions through March 12.

From annual exams and immunizations, to surgical care and condition management, TriWest Healthcare Alliance’s network of more than 150,000 doctors provides 2.7 million Tricare West Region service members, retirees and their families with exceptional health care.

As the nation prepares to commemorate Doctors’ Day, TriWest joins its Tricare beneficiaries in thanking and showing appreciation to the men and women who don scrubs or white coats to care for the military community.

“Soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines can remain focused on their job at hand because they trust that Tricare providers stand ready to take care of their families and loved ones,” said David McIntyre Jr., TriWest president. “Doctors’ Day is a great opportunity to show appreciation for those who care for the families of those who defend our nation. They are truly heroes serving heroes.”

Tricare providers must undergo stringent credentialing to ensure beneficiaries receive the highest quality of care that they are entitled to receive. This also means more flexibility for beneficiaries in receiving care when and where they need it, and an exceptional level of care and customer service.

Doctors’ Day was first observed March 30, 1933, on the anniversary of the first use of a general anesthetic in surgery in 1842.

In 1991, President George H.W. Bush signed the legislation establishing National Doctors’ Day.
