Caring is our calling: National Hospital Week puts spotlight on people

Front of Building

A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal, it is part of the community that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to ill patients, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are a vital part of a healthy and optimistic community.

That’s the message in 2018 National Hospital Week’s theme, “Caring is Our Calling.” The aim of hospital week is to unite health care facilities around the country during the May 6-12 celebration.

“National Hospital Week, first and foremost, is a celebration of people,” Tamara Miller, CEO of Madison Regional Health System, said. “We are extremely proud of each member of our staff and we recognize the important role they play in extending a sense of trust to our patients and our communities.”

Madison Regional Health System has been providing the Madison Community with health care for over 130 years. Dr. Alonzo Clough, was the first doctor to arrive in Madison in 1978, and he established the first hospital in 1884 known as the “City Hospital” or commonly the “Mansion House Hospital” on the corner of First Street and West Avenue. This was five years before South Dakota became a state.

For over a century, people have worked to provide quality health care around the clock, every day, for the Madison area and surrounding communities. Now more than 250 employees work in many different aspects of health care to ensure that medical care is close by when patients need it.

MRHS is a non-profit, independent facility with 22 inpatient beds along with outpatient, surgical, emergency, clinic and urgent care services. Madison Regional Health also provides community education on health topics including newborn care, diabetes, CRP training, farm safety, trauma education and health careers.
