The celebration of National Hospital Week (NHW) began in 1921 when a magazine editor suggested that more information about hospitals might alleviate public fears about the "shrouded" institutions of the day. From that beginning, Hospital Week expanded to facilities across the nation. Today, through promotion and participation, National Hospital Week has grown into the nation's largest health care event.

For National Hospital Week, May 6-12, 2007, we are paying tribute to the pride, professionalism and people of health care with the inspiring slogan “Care You Count On, People You Trust.” A Unifying theme, it spotlights the extraordinary relationship between hospitals and the communities we serve. The Planning Guide is an easy-to use reference filled with ideas, information and step-by-step guidance on building a successful event.
