MHA Celebrates National Hospital Week
Staff Contact: Mary Becker
During National Hospital Week, May 6 – 12, join MHA in celebrating and thanking Missouri hospital employees and volunteers for their dedication to improving lives in their communities. Through compassionate care and hard work, our hospital family delivers hope, humanity and heroism to fellow Missourians each and every day.
MHA’s “H” campaign was launched during Hospital Week 2016 and continues to honor “hospital heroes” through nominations, and each month, we select a “Hospital Hero of the Month.” The winner is recognized in the Hospital Hero Hall of Fame, on Missouri Health Matters’ social media channels and by their respective hospital, and receives a $100 Visa gift card (as does their nominator).
We know each Missouri hospital boasts many heroes within its walls, and we want to recognize them. To help promote nominations for your heroes and to share your hospital's story, we have provided a Hospital Hero Toolkit, which includes promotional flyers, digital and shareable graphics and sample social media messages.
We encourage our members to use Hospital Week as a platform to honor hospital heroes and to share our new hospital appreciation video to show the positive impact Missouri hospitals have on their communities.

Consider This ...
This week is National Hospital Week. In 2016, Missouri hospitals provided $719 million in charity care. Put into perspective, that is equivalent to 701,039 free emergency department visits each year, 17,327 free physician office visits every day or 5.9 million free mammograms each year.
