Hospitals across the country and their millions of employees work diligently to provide quality care to patients 24/7/365.

Much of the time their hard works goes unnoticed, but not this week. National Hospital Week is a chance for us all to say thanks! This year’s celebration runs from May 7th to the 13th and the theme is “The Healing Heart of Healthcare.”

The FAH and its member hospitals are proud to join other health care industry leaders to acknowledge the critical work hospitals perform caring for patients. We take this week each year to show our appreciation to the dedicated physicians, nurses, therapists, clinicians, engineers, custodial workers, food service workers, volunteers, and administrators who keep hospitals operating all day, every day to care for anyone who walks through their doors.

As the theme for this week suggests, the hospital is more than just a building – it is the “heart” of the community. It is the commitment of the people working inside that make it all possible.

Hospitals also are a strong economic pillar and provide jobs to numerous people in their communities.

The FAH extends its gratitude to the dedicated and compassionate professionals who care for millions of patients each day.
