National Hospital Week is May 8-14, a week specifically set aside to celebrate hospitals and show thanks and appreciation to those who work in them, for the vital role they play in the health of our community.
This year’s theme, We Are Health Care, honors all of our hospital team members for their hard work and dedication to keeping our patients and their families safe and healthy.
“The unwavering strength and commitment demonstrated by our nurses, physicians, caregivers, and staff is deeply appreciated and admired,” said Murali N. Naidu, M.D., CEO of Emanuel Medical Center. “I am thankful to them every day for stepping up in the moments that matter most to our patients and for their essential support as we continue to work together to ensure every patient in our community receives high-quality, compassionate care.”

The event has grown over the past 100 years and is now the nation’s largest health care event, providing an opportunity to highlight hospitals, health systems, and health care workers and the innovative ways they are supporting and connected to their community.At Emanuel Medical Center, we celebrated Hospital Week with special theme days including Musical Monday (wear your favorite music genre attire), Take Me to the Beach Tuesday (wear your beach or tropical attire), Western Wednesday (wear your western best), Throwback Thursday (wear something from your favorite era) and EMC Spirit Day (wear your EMC gear). We also hosted a hospital-week breakfast on Friday, as well as fun Hospital Week activities throughout the week.
