National Hospital Week: May 8 - 14, 2011

 AHA National Hospital Week Poster 2011

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.

Today, National Hospital Week, the nation’s largest health care event, is a celebration of the history, technology and dedicated professionals that make our facilities beacons of confidence and care.

The annual event provides advantages throughout the year including staff retention, improved recruitment, better departmental interaction, a more satisfied workplace and increased awareness throughout the community.
