To encourage its health care team members, Tanner Health System in Carrollton, Ga., has created a “Tanner Heroes” page on Facebook and invited the public to post words of appreciation and inspiration. The #TannerHeroes hashtag feed on the health system’s website pulls Instagram and Twitter content onto an aggregated page. Internally, the health system is using #TannerHeroes and #TannerUnited to build camaraderie and show support to its health care teams. Cookies and other treats, donated through Tanner Foundation, are being delivered to nurse stations at all Tanner hospitals, and many local restaurants are delivering and even donating meals to employees at the hospitals.
