National Hospital Week is May 10-16

Of course the topic is widepread across Healthcare on the cornaonavirus, but healthcare doesn't stop there and National Hospital Week is not about the virus. It does however come during a time where the virus highlights healthcare. Stevens Community Medical Center and Starbuck Clinic celebrate hospitals, health systems and everyone who supports the health and well-being of their community. A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal, it is a part of the community that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optimistic community. 

The nation’s largest health care event, National Hospital Week dates back to 1921 when it was suggested by a magazine editor who hoped a community wide celebration would alleviate public fears about hospitals. The celebration, launched in Chicago, succeeded in promoting trust and goodwill among members of the public and eventually spread to facilities across the country.

We want to say thank you to all of the dedicated individuals – physicians and providers, nurses, therapists, food service, volunteers, administrators and so many more – for your contributions to healthcare. They  work daily to put patients first and help in promoting health, safety and to ensure quality care.
