National Hospital Week, organized by the American Hospital Association, is celebrated every May to honor hospitals, health systems, and healthcare workers across the United States. This year, the observance runs from May 12th to the 18th, providing an opportunity to recognize the more than 6.3 million professionals who work in over 6,000 hospitals nationwide. It is an occasion to appreciate those who ensure that our healthcare systems run smoothly and provide exceptional care to the communities they serve. 

This year, Locumpedia has crafted a slogan for the National Hospital Week celebration: "America's Hospitals: A Symphony of Compassionate Care." This slogan underscores the collective effort of all those working in hospitals and health systems. From physicians and nurses to administrators and support staff, they harmonize their skills and compassion to deliver effective patient care.
