Celebrate National Hospital Week

May 8-14 marks National Hospital Week, a celebration of hospitals and health care workers who support their communities’ well-being through compassionate care. For hospitals, it serves as an opportunity to promote their support of community health and recognize the individuals vital to their operations — medical staff, nurses, engineers, volunteers, service professionals, administrators and others. The American Hospital Association (AHA) has prepared a digital toolkit for hospitals to use in explaining through social media why their hospitals are important to the communities they serve. Some ways for hospitals to participate include sharing photos or videos highlighting the important role hospitals play using the tag #MyHospital, or changing their social media icons to images provided by AHA.
