PHOENIX, March 28 /PRNewswire/ -- From annual exams to keeping kids immunized, TriWest Healthcare Alliance's network doctors provide America's Service members, retirees and their families with peace of mind during the good times, and reassurance and support during challenging periods.

As the nation prepares to commemorate Doctors' Day on Sunday, March 30, TriWest joins its TRICARE beneficiaries in thanking and showing appreciation to the men and women who don scrubs or white coats to care for our military community.

Over the last few weeks, TriWest encouraged its beneficiaries to share how their doctors are making a difference at http://www.triwest.com. Their comments and a special tribute video are available for viewing at http://www.triwest.com/DrDay.

"We have a variety of specialized and skilled physicians in our network who everyday provide exceptional medical care to families that defend our nation," TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. said. "We thank all of them -- our heroes serving heroes -- for making a difference in the lives of our beneficiaries. We also wanted to provide our beneficiaries with an opportunity to publicly thank their doctors for the great work that they do."

TriWest has more than 130,000 network providers and physicians in the civilian health care network throughout its 21-state TRICARE West Region. These providers must undergo stringent credentialing to ensure beneficiaries receive the highest quality of care they are entitled to receive. This also means more flexibility for beneficiaries in receiving the care when and where they need it and an exceptional level of care and customer service.

Doctors' Day was first observed March 30, 1933, the anniversary of the first use of a general anesthetic in surgery. In 1991, President George H.W. Bush signed legislation establishing National Doctors' Day.
