#WeAreHealthCare National Hospital Week theme showcases the pride and resiliency of front line workers in America’s hospitals and health systems

This National Hospital Week (NHW), the AHA will follow the theme We Are Health Care — recognizing the women and men who work in America’s hospitals and health systems and the vital role they play in our society.

AHA and its professional membership groups (PMGs) have created resources to assist hospitals and health systems in celebrating National Hospital Week, May 8–14, and National Nurses Week, Mary 6–12. These weeks provide an extra opportunity to highlight America’s health care workers. Join us in this effort to help celebrate their story.

Videos

The AHA created a series of new videos sharing the health care workers’ perspective on the pandemic. The testimonial series shares the pandemic experience from the point of view of health care engineers, nurses, risk managers, environmental, supply chain, and other parts of the health care workforce. Access the video series on the National Hospital Week webpage.

As part of the video series and to highlight the hard work of America’s health care workers over the past two years, the AHA prepared a custom music video, “Worth Fighting,” for use by AHA members. The song was written in 2021 by Musician’s On Call Volunteer Brailey Lenderman and hit songwriter Chris Sligh based on their interviews with health care workers, who shared over video conference their moments of joy and struggle during the pandemic. The video can be customized with your hospital or health system logo and used on your digital channels.

Social Engagement

The AHA developed social content allowing social users of all levels to get involved in showing support to health care workers. These include:

  • Three distinct graphics for a hospital “H” social media profile takeovers. Download here.
  • Instagram and Facebook AR filter effect. Show your health care provider pride with these social photo frames. Promote the filters in your hospital using a poster with an easy to access QR code.
  • Download the full social media engagement toolkit and social media assets.
