Every year we mark National Hospital Week by thanking our loyal, committed healthcare employees who perform many unsung tasks as they save lives and help patients recover.
Normally, it’s an annual celebration within our University Health System family, and we don’t send out a media advisory. But 2020 hasn’t been a normal year for hospitals and healthcare. And what we’ve learned about our capabilities, resourcefulness and ability to meet challenges has given all of us new pride in who we are. As the threat of COVID-19 escalated and the going got tough, the tough, creative folks got going here at University Health.
So, if you’ll indulge us, we want to mark this National Hospital Week, May 10-May 16, by sharing some of where we’ve been so far since we began living with COVID-19: how we’ve responded to challenges with solutions; how we’ve worked with partners to meet the healthcare needs of our community; how we’re conducting research that may lead to treatments for this coronavirus.
Here are some of our accomplishments:
This is a just a short list with examples of why we want to share our celebration of this National Hospital Week. It’s also an opportunity to say thank you for the unwavering support we’ve received from generous donors and supporters. We really are all in this together. And we believe that as a resourceful, caring community, we are meeting the challenge.
