A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal, it is a part of the community that fosters health and represents hope.
While providing treatment and comfort to the sick, Pike County Memorial Hospital is central to a healthy and optimistic community. PCMH joins organizers in promoting the 2013 National Hospital Week theme “A Guiding Light for Changing Times.”
The theme is aimed at uniting health care facilities across the country during the May 12–18 celebration.
“National Hospital Week, first and foremost, is a celebration of people,” Lorraine Harness, administrator of PCMH, said. “We’re extremely proud of each member of our staff and we recognize the important role they play in extending a sense of trust to our patients and our communities.”
During National Hospital Week, PCMH honors all of the 200+ employees who work so hard to give excellent care each and every day. Whether they provide direct patient care or work in a non-clinical position, all of the employees contribute to the health and well-being of PCMH patients. A full slate of activities is planned during Hospital Week to thank the staff for all that they contribute to our community.
People come to the hospital with many different problems, but they all come for the same reason—to get better.
The doctors, nurses and staff at Pike County Memorial Hospital have one charge—to help people get well. During National Hospital Week, we’re celebrating the wonderful, committed professionals who make our county hospital a place where healing happens every day.
