National Hospital Week May 6-12

National Hospital Week 2018 celebrates hospitals, health systems, and the women and men who support the health and well-being of their communities through dedication and care from the heart.

Celebrating National Hospital Week provides an opportunity to thank all of the dedicated individuals – physicians, nurses, therapists, engineers, food service workers, volunteers, administrators and so many more – for their contributions. Feel free to use the 2018 National Hospital Week resources to help get the word out about National Hospital Week.
