It's Hospital Week

National Hospital Week is May 6-12 and is celebrated in recognition of healthcare employees who work hard every day to make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.
“Our employees are dedicated to providing compassionate care and are committed to ensuring our patients receive high quality care every day,” said Matt Rees, chief executive officer at Mayers Memorial Hospital District. “They represent our hospital in the best possible way, and I am very proud of the work they do.”

Since 1921, hospitals across the country have been celebrating National Hospital Week and inviting their communities to join in saying thank you to the extraordinary people who care for our friends and families.
Everyone has had some sort of experience in a hospital, so while the goal of National Hospital Week is to promote awareness, it is more important for us to focus on professional pride.  “I see firsthand what goes into the daily operations of a hospital, and I am proud to say that it is the team of people who work in a hospital that make it great.  From the physicians who diagnose and treat patients, to the nurses who provide comfort and medical care, to all the staff in the entire hospital who are behind the scenes to the environmental crews who keep our hospital clean, it is the people who make a difference.” Rees added.
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 fixing broken bones, hospitals are central to a healthy community.  The nation’s largest health care event, National Hospital Week was originated 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.
Mayers Memorial Hospital District has been serving the Intermountain Community since 1956 and employees over 200 people.
