Compassus – Orange Celebrates National Doctors’ Day

ORANGE, Conn. – The Compassus program serving Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex, New London, Litchfield, Hartford and Tolland Counties is observing National Doctors’ Day on March 30 by heralding physicians for the care they provide patients.

“Physicians dedicate themselves to improving the lives of others. They provide comfort and care to our hospice patients and deserve recognition,” said Bridget Perun, executive director of Compassus – Orange. “We are thankful for the crucial role they play in alleviating patient suffering and helping families cope with serious illness.”

Hospice health care providers have expertise in pain management and symptom control. Physicians are trained to help patients and families cope with the difficulties of hospice care, including medical treatment side effects and caregiver stress. Hospice doctors can also assist patients and loved ones with making difficult medical decisions.
