Yoakum Community Hospital will observe National Hospital Week May 10 through 16, 2020. This year’s theme is ‘Where Health Comes First’.
“In celebration of National Hospital Week, we thank our community for the privilege to serve our citizens and neighbors with compassionate, quality care,” said Karen Barber, CEO, Yoakum Community Hospital. “Every member of our staff is dedicated and honored to care for and protect the health of our community, especially during these difficult times.”
Long esteemed as healing environments, hospitals remain a vital link to ensure the well-being of communities. Celebrated this year from May 10 through May 16, National Hospital Week applauds the nation’s hospitals, healthcare systems and healthcare professionals as they provide essential, innovative frontline care.
With unprecedented demands on America’s health care system from the COVID-19 pandemic and a surging number of patients infected with the coronavirus, U.S. hospitals are working round-the-clock to meet local healthcare needs.
An annual event, National Hospital Week celebrates the history, technology and dedicated professionals that make healthcare facilities examples of trust and caring. Throughout the year, hospitals strive to improve patient care and the patient experience.
