Celebrate National Hospital Week May 6-12: “Caring is our Calling”

April 27, 2018

The Wisconsin Hospital Association joins hospitals from across the country in celebrating National Hospital Week May 6-12. This year’s theme is “Caring is our Calling,” recognizing the more than 100,000 people who care for patients, families and communities every day in Wisconsin’s hospitals and health systems.

National Hospital Week 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 the dedicated individuals—physicians, nurses, therapists, engineers, food service workers, volunteers, administrators and so many more—for their contributions.

“This week we stop to acknowledge the people who comprise our dedicated, remarkable workforce for providing the high-quality, high-value care that has become a standard in Wisconsin,” said WHA President/CEO Eric Borgerding. “Their commitment to their profession and to the higher calling of compassion and care for others is an invaluable asset in communities across our state.”

The American Hospital Association has created a digital toolkit and a template for a #MyHospital social media campaign that organizations can use during the week

WHA will be active on its social media channels throughout Hospital Week. Watch for posts on Facebook and Twitter.
