|Subject:||Resolution Recognizing the Week of May 10 through May 16, 2020, as "National Hospital Week" in Pennsylvania|
|I will be introducing a resolution in the near future recognizing the week of May 10 through May 16, 2020, as "National Hospital Week" in Pennsylvania.
In Pennsylvania, specialized hospital care is provided by 41 trauma centers, seven burn centers, and 15 critical access hospitals that provide care for the most rural populations in this Commonwealth. Furthermore, Pennsylvania is home to seven medical degree-granting medical schools, 289 nursing programs, as well as numerous academic medical centers and teaching hospitals 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 10 through May 16, 2020, as "National Hospital Week" in Pennsylvania.
Thank you for your interest and support.
