This week, hospitals throughout our region, California, and the country will be celebrating National Hospital Week. While this is an annual time to recognize the vital roles hospitals and health systems play in our communities, more importantly, it’s an opportunity to celebrate all health care workers — who are essential to their success.
As we will be discussing at our Hospital Council Board of Directors’ meeting this week, your hospitals are facing challenges at every turn. Despite these challenges, your hospitals continue your lifesaving work — 24/7/365. Every employee is vital to the success of hospitals, which simply could not function without all of you.
National Hospital Week serves as a wonderful reminder of the importance of health care in our communities. Hospitals are the cornerstone of the community, places that patients and their families rely on every day to provide the care they need to lead healthy, happy lives. The Hospital Council is so grateful for all of our health care professionals, who are committed to preserving and restoring the health of so many Californians, even in the face of such adversity.
To all the health care workers in the Hospital Council region and beyond — thank you for your dedication, expertise, compassion, and service to others. Thank you for all that you do and will continue to do to make a difference in the lives of those who need you the most.
