National Hospital Week - "The Healing Heart of Health Care"

National Hospital Week

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. That’s the message organizers are touting with the 2017 National Hospital Week theme “The Healing Heart of Healthcare.”

The event theme is the centerpiece of a promotional campaign aimed at uniting health care facilities across the country during the May 7–13 celebration.

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.
