Philadelphia Union Soccer Team Celebrates Doctors on National Doctors' Day


To celebrate National Doctors Day (March 30), the Philadelphia Union professional soccer team invited a group of physicians from Crozer Health and Premier Orthopaedics to Subaru Park in Chester, the team’s home stadium. Crozer Health is a founding partner and official healthcare provider of the Union, and Premier Orthopaedics is the team’s official medical provider. The Union used the observance day to thank Crozer Health physicians for keeping the coaches and players safe and healthy during the season, and for all they’ve done for the community.

During their afternoon with the team, the physicians were presented with personalized Union jerseys, treated to a special event and photo shoot, and showered with thanks. Watch a short video of the Union's Doctors' Day event.
