National Hospital Week: May 9 - 15, 2010
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, National Hospital Week is the largest health care event that celebrates hospitals' history, technology and dedicated health care professionals.
In addition, hospital week has emerged as a highly anticipated recognition program spotlighting the individuals who drive the engine of health care.
