Good Samaritan is celebrating its 1,847 caregivers this May during National Hospital Week. During the week of May 9 – 13, the organization will be celebrating Hospital Week as a way to thank all of its caregivers for their contributions.

President and CEO of Good Samaritan, Rob McLin stated that he looks forward to this week each year. “Throughout the past two years, our caregivers have had to work in unprecedented conditions. Providing care with limited staff in a global pandemic is no easy task. Although they faced multiple hurdles, I have seen everyone grow together and work as a team to provide the best care to every patient.”

Good Samaritan will be celebrating Hospital Week with an annual employee cookout, giveaways and activities free to all employees and volunteers.

“I invite our community to join me in thanking our caregivers for their role in health and safety,” added McLin. “Reach out to your family and friends who work here at Good Samaritan or in the health care field and offer your appreciation during National Hospital Week.”

National Hospital Day was first observed on May 12, 1921. In 1953, the day was expanded to become National Hospital Week, presenting hospitals with more time to educate the public about medical care. This year’s theme is “We Are Health Care” to recognize the women and men who work in America’s hospitals and health systems and the vital role they play in our society.
