Celebrate National Hospital Week May 12-18

May 14, 2019

The Wisconsin Hospital Association joins hospitals across the country in celebrating National Hospital Week May 12-18. This year’s theme is “Celebrating Hope and Healing,” recognizing more than 150,000 people employed in Wisconsin health care, all contributing in some way to the care of others.

This week celebrates the hospitals, health systems, and the women and men who support the health and well-being of their communities with kindness, compassion, and dedication. It’s an opportunity to thank all the dedicated individuals—physicians, nurses, therapists, food service workers, volunteers, administrators and so many more—for their contributions.

“This week, we stop to acknowledge and thank the dedicated people who work or volunteer in Wisconsin’s hospitals and health systems who provide remarkable care for patients, families and communities every day,” said Eric Borgerding, WHA President and CEO. “They are the reason Wisconsin is nationally recognized for its high-quality, high-value health care.”

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.
