More than 90 years ago, the American Hospital Association HSHS created National Hospital Week to honor the men and women who support and serve their communities through their dedication and care. This year’s celebration week was May 6-12. HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital embraced this opportunity to thank all of the hospital’s dedicated physicians, nurses, engineers, dietary staff, volunteers, administrators and so many more for their support.
The hospital held activities each day to add fun. Activities included an ice cream social, a logo wear day and colleagues were encouraged to wear their favorite sports team apparel. There was a special Mass with a blessing of the hands. The week culminated with administrators and senior management serving colleagues.
HSHS Good Shepherd also celebrated National Nurses Week the same week. This celebration coincides with Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
