Every year during National Nurses Week, May 6-12th and National Hospital Week May 7-13th, we couldn’t be prouder to recognize our nurses, hospitals, health systems and health care workers for the commitment and compassion they demonstrate in serving their patients and communities.
This year, National Hospital Week coincides with National Nurses Week, providing us with the opportunity to say thank you to our nurses for their commitment and dedication to protecting, promoting and improving health care for their patients when they need it most. After witnessing their courage and selflessness with which they supported New Hampshire residents statewide through the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re reminded of the incredible resilience and commitment that all of our nurses and hospitals across the state demonstrate with regard to the safety and well-being of their patients and staff.
Hospitals demonstrate their unwavering commitment to serving their communities in sickness and in health 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. But a hospital is more than a place where people go to heal; it is part of the community that fosters health, inspires wellness and represents hope. That is the promise that the blue and white “H” delivers to every patient, every family, in every community. From providing compassionate medical care within their facilities to engaging in collaborations with community health partners, hospitals exist as the cornerstones of health and wellness throughout our state.
In honor of National Hospital and National Nurses Week, and every week after, we thank the 71,000+ individuals who work in health care for their commitment and dedication to serving as places of health, healing and hope on behalf of their communities.
