FAH Celebrates 2019 National Hospital Week

FAH and its member companies are joining other health care industry leaders to celebrate 2019 National Hospital Week May 12- 18. National Hospital Week represents FAH’s appreciation for the more than 5,000 community hospitals across our country.

Each year, we take this week to show our gratitude 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.

In line with this year’s theme, “Celebrating Hope and Healing” we are highlighting the dedicated work of the men and women who support the well-being of hospitals and communities across the country. Our hospital heroes, whose stories can be found here, are improving the places they work and communities where they live through hard work and acts of kindness.

This week FAH is celebrating the hospitals and caregivers who are healing our veterans as they return home from service, teaching our next generation of providers and assisting those recovering from serious illness.

These hospitals are not just providing life-saving and vital care to our communities, they are economic pillars providing jobs to our friends and neighbors and millions of people across the country.

National Hospital week begins on May 12th on the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. FAH extends its gratitude to the dedicated and compassionate professionals who care for millions of patients each day.

Please join us this week by using #HospitalWeek to join in on the conversation.
