|Subject:||Recognizing the Week of May 6 through May 12, 2018, as "National Hospital Week" in Pennsylvania|
|I will be introducing a resolution in the near future recognizing the week of May 6 through May 12, 2018, as "National Hospital Week" in Pennsylvania.
In Pennsylvania, specialized hospital care is provided by 40 trauma centers, six burn centers, and 15 critical access hospitals that provide care for the most rural populations in this Commonwealth. Furthermore, Pennsylvania is home to seven 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 recognizing the week of May 6 through May 12, 2018, as "National Hospital Week" in Pennsylvania.
Thank you for your interest and support.
