This National Hospital Week, we reflect on the dedication and contributions of our hospital partners, recognizing the impact they have on our communities. 

Hospitals have faced unimaginable challenges. From navigating unprecedented health crises to meeting the ever-evolving demands of healthcare, they have shown resilience and innovation in providing quality care.

Hospitals and health systems are the backbone of our entire healthcare system. In one year, they will provide emergency care for more than 130 million people — our parents, spouses, children, and friends. Between healthcare professionals and high-quality hospitals, the health of our communities continues to improve! 

Did you know?*

  • Six babies are delivered every minute
  • 260 emergency visits occur every minute
  • 60 patients are admitted every minute
  • Nearly half of all U.S. healthcare workers work in our nation’s hospitals

National Hospital Week is a time to recognize and express our gratitude for everything they do to keep us, and our families and friends, safe and healthy. It’s a moment to celebrate their resilience, strength, and compassion. Their tireless and selfless efforts deserve our deepest appreciation.

Thank you for the difference you make.
