Every year, we come together for National Hospital Week, one of the nation’s largest health care events, to celebrate all those individuals who deliver quality, compassionate health care to their patients every day.

This year, National Hospital Week runs May 7th – 13th and provides us with the opportunity to say thank you to all of those individuals who play such an important role in the care that is delivered not only within their walls, but within their communities as well.  From physicians and nurses to administrators and volunteers, hospitals care for our family, friends and neighbors in times of sickness and in health 365 days a year.

In addition to our hospitals, we celebrate National Nurses Week, May 6th – 12th,  in honor of those at the front lines, leading the charge to health and wellness.   We extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our nurses for their dedication to their patients and their profession, and to delivering compassionate care when their patients need it most.

We are humbled by all those in the healthcare field who deliver compassionate, high quality care to patients and their families, and their unwavering commitment to serving their communities as places of health, healing and hope.

So please join us in thanking the many individuals who give their all to their neighbors. From providing medical care in our facilities to running vital programs in our community, we are extremely proud to support those who are committed to the health and well-being of New Hampshire.
