National Hospital Week: May 11-17, 2008
The celebration of National Hospital Week 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 11-17, 2008, we are paying tribute to the pride, professionalism and people of health care with the inspiring slogan "Where Healing Happens Everyday." This theme spotlights the extraordinary work hospitals do as they strive to create better health and better health care for the communities they serve.
