Join us in saying thank you to our entire team at Washington Regional Medical Center May 8-14 during National Hospital Week. We continue to be inspired by our healthcare workers every day and are grateful for their dedication and passion for providing care to our community.
This recognition week dates back to 1921 when President Harding declared the first National Hospital Day. He chose May 12 in honor of iconic nurse Florence Nightingale’s birthday. In 1953, it was expanded to National Hospital Week to give hospitals more time for public education about medical care.
