For one week every year, the nation’s healthcare leaders pause to celebrate and recognize the millions of healthcare professionals – from dietitians to physicians, administrative support to engineers – who make safe, high quality, compassionate healthcare available in communities across the country. From May 8 -14, Logan Memorial Hospital is proud to join the American Hospital Association for National Hospital Week and honor the hard work, commitment and dedication of the men and women who are the heart of our hospital.
National Hospital Week also commends the many contributions that hospitals make in big cities, small towns and rural regions across the United States each day. For example, Logan Memorial Hospital provides more than just healthcare services close to home. It is an integral part of our community’s economic health, providing jobs for 230 individuals, offering important health education courses for the community, and providing $400,000 in charity care each year.
“We consider it a privilege to serve the healthcare needs of Logan County and the surrounding areas, and we are continuously looking for new ways to advance our mission of Making Communities Healthier,” said Jim Bills, CEO of Logan Memorial Hospital. “Each day, our staff strives to enhance quality care and patient safety; expand the services we provide to better meet the needs of the community; improve our patients’ healthcare experiences; and reach out to people in need. We are proud of what we do – both within our hospital walls and outside of them – to contribute to the overall health and well-being of our region.”
Delivering quality healthcare close to home is the single most important contribution we make. However, there are many other ways we make a positive impact on the communities we serve. Logan Memorial Hospital is an active supporter in our community through various sponsorships and donations. During 2015, we awarded more than 25 organizations with funds along with participating in community events.
“We want to create places where people choose to come for healthcare, physicians want to practice and employees want to work,” said Bills. “We are so thankful to the men and women who work at Logan Memorial Hospital for delivering high quality, compassionate care each and every day. It’s an honor to work alongside such an exemplary team, and I hope the community will join me in celebrating all of our dedicated employees during this special week.”
