In recognition of National Hospital Week, May 7 – 13, we extend our sincerest gratitude and thanks to all of the dedicated men and women who contribute to making our hospitals and our healthcare exceptional. Each and every hospital employee plays an important role, completing the puzzle that not only makes our hospital whole, but makes us #MoreThanAHospital.
So, we want to say thank you to all of our doctors, nurses, surgeons, therapists, technicians, administrative staff, janitorial staff, clerical staff, IT staff, food services staff, environmental services staff, pharmacy staff, volunteers, donors and more — we could not do what we do without you! Every single person who walks through our doors to serve Columbus Regional Healthcare System is an integral part of our ability to provide the services and care that our community needs. Thank you!
National Nurses Week is also celebrated at this time every year, and we would be remiss if we did not recognize our amazing nursing staff for all of their hard work and dedication! We know how demanding being a nurse can be, and we are so grateful to our nurses for their incredible commitment, skills, tact and care. Thank you!
National Nurses Week was established in 1921 in honor of the famed nurse, Florence Nightingale. As such, National Nurses Week always begins May 6 and ends on May 12, Nightingale’s birthday. Initially, the holiday was recognized for only one day, but was extended to a week to allow more time to spread public awareness about important healthcare issues and the people who support their communities by dedicating their lives to its development and success.
