Havre, Montana – This year’s National Hospital Week runs from May 11-17. National Hospital Week celebrates hospitals and the men and women who, day in and day out, support the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication. The commemorative celebration serves as a reminder that hospitals are foundations of the communities that built them and nurture them, and that hospitals serve people in every community from all walks of life.
Hospitals today are multi-dimensional environments that offer every medical specialty, with a focus on prevention and wellness, and now, more than ever, hospitals play a vital role in improving community health across the nation. Take this year’s National Hospital Week as an opportunity to thank all of the dedicated individuals – physicians, nurses, therapists, engineers, food service workers, volunteers, administrators and so many more – for their commitment.
“Join us in thanking the many individuals who contribute to the work that we do here at Northern Montana Health Care. From providing medical care in our facilities to running vital programs in our community, we are committed to supporting the health and well-being of everyone in and around the Hi-Line communities.” says David C. Henry, President and CEO of Northern Montana Health Care (NMHC). “Here in Havre, we understand the importance of good health, especially when it comes to the Montana lifestyle we enjoy. At Northern Montana Health Care, we look for better ways to help our people accomplish that. As the anchor for the health of our communities, we are also one of the largest employers in the region. It is our duty to deliver the best possible care with courtesy, efficiency, and respect.”
