CCMH is celebrating our "Rock Stars of healthcare”-that’s the theme for this year’s National Hospital Week, May 10-16, 2015. It celebrates the men and women who, day in and day out, remain committed to improving the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication. This is the annual opportunity to thank the dedicated individuals—physicians, therapist, technologist, nurses, support staff, volunteers, administrators and so many more—for their commitment. It’s also a great time for us to tell the hospital story and publicly reinforce the vital role hospitals play in their community’s overall health, which extends far beyond strictly providing medical care.
