May 10, 2021 - National Hospital and Healthcare Week is May 9-15, a week specifically set aside to celebrate hospitals and show thanks and appreciation to those who work in them, for the vital role they play in the health of our community. This year’s theme, Inspiring Hope through Healing, recognizes the hope our healthcare workers provide despite an ongoing pandemic, and acknowledges their efforts on behalf of patients and the community.
“The past year has been a devastating time for our country and for the world, but against all odds, our hospital technicians, respiratory therapists, nurses, doctors and many others have remained a stalwart and steadfast force against COVID, helping to keep our community safer,” said Matthew K. Garner. “Their work has been nothing short of miraculous.”
Since 1921, hospitals across the country have been celebrating National Hospital and Healthcare Week. The event has grown over the past 100 years and is now the nation’s largest health care event, celebrating the history, technology and dedicated professionals who make hospitals and healthcare facilities beacons of confidence and care.
