A National Doctors' Day Message from Dr. Elana Schrader, SVP, Health Care Services and President, GuideWell Health

It’s National Doctors’ Day, an annual celebration of physicians and the work they do in our communities. For many reasons, it’s an occasion that is near and dear to my heart.

I chose to pursue a career in medicine after a childhood spent watching my father, also a physician, tirelessly care for his patients. His dedication and depth of knowledge were inspiring. Today, I am equally inspired by so many of our team members at GuideWell who are using their time, talent and expertise as doctors to help our members and patients in a wide variety of roles.

Whether in a clinical setting or serving our organization in another, equally important way, our community of doctors across the enterprise is quite literally our mission in action. They have chosen to spend their days helping people and communities achieve better health. We couldn’t do it without them.
