This National Hospital Week, we recognize and celebrate our hospital partners, and all the ways in which they go above and beyond in supporting their patients and communities.
The history of National Hospital Week dates to 1921, when National Hospital Day was established to recognize the crucial work of hospitals in the wake of the Spanish flu outbreak of 1918.
A century later, in the wake of another pandemic, the importance of the role that hospitals play in our communities has never been more clear. In the past two years, these facilities have gone above and beyond in finding innovative ways to serve their patients, and to serve as a beacon of hope in their communities during an uncertain time. Their tireless dedication is a daily inspiration to us, and we are honored to partner with them in providing the best possible care to their patients.
Did you know? National Hospital Week was established on Florence Nightingale’s birthday, May 12th, to acknowledge her work in revolutionizing hospital care.
We hope you join us in recognizing and celebrating your local hospital and all the work they do to support your community: this week, and every week. And to all of our hospital partners: thank you for everything you do! We are proud to serve with you.
