National Hospital Week 2023

May 7-13 is National Hospital Week, an opportunity to recognize the health care workers, hospitals, and health systems that improve and save lives in our communities.

This year is especially important among our rural hospital communities as we recognize and celebrate the selfless health care workers who continue striving to provide great care to patients in the face of continued workforce and financial challenges.

Hereford Regional Medical Center is an important pillar of our community thanks to the tireless efforts of our health care workers who build trust with the people of Hereford through the excellent care, support, and education they offer.

“Our incredible staff provides the best possible care for our community every day,” said Jeff Barnhart, FACHE, president/ CEO of Deaf Smith County Hospital District. “The level of care we provide and our ability to find new ways of advancing care for our patients is due to the dedication and hard work of our hospital and clinic employees.”

From advancing the innovative community paramedicine program to helping patients recover close to home after surgery or an acute wound, our dedicated health care workers support the mission of Hereford Regional Medical Center to advance care in Hereford each and every day.

There are over 6.3 million health care workers across the country, all working towards a greater goal to provide vital and lifesaving care every single day. From routine health checks to complex treatment to emergency care, health care workers play an active role in improving the health and wellbeing of their communities and the country as a whole.

A longstanding tradition, National Hospital Day was established in 1921 and later changed to National Hospital Week in 1953.
