House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Recognizing the week of May 8-14, 2016 as "National Hospital Week" in the Commonwealth
In the near future, I will be introducing a resolution recognizing the week of May 8-14, 2016, as “National Hospital Week” in the Commonwealth.

In Pennsylvania, specialized hospital care is provided by 34 trauma centers, 6 burn centers and 14 critical access hospitals that provide care for the most rural populations in this Commonwealth. Furthermore, Pennsylvania is home to 6 academic medical centers and numerous teaching hospitals and medical schools that train future health care providers and invest in critical health research.

Not only do hospitals play a vital role in delivering health care services to all people of this Commonwealth, they also provide many services to their communities and are a key element in Pennsylvania’s economy. Whether it’s acute inpatient care, outpatient, emergency, rehabilitation, behavioral health, and more, our hospitals in Pennsylvania serve a vital mission.

Please consider joining me in celebrating the contributions of hospitals and their employees by designating the week of May 8 through 14, 2016, as "National Hospital Week" in this Commonwealth.

Thank you for your interest and support.
