Subject: Resolution Recognizing the Week of May 12 through May 18, 2024, as "National Hospital Week" in Pennsylvania
We will be introducing a resolution in the near future recognizing the week of May 12 through May 18, 2024, as "National Hospital Week" in Pennsylvania.

In Pennsylvania, specialized hospital care is provided by 50 trauma centers, seven burn centers, and 16 critical access hospitals that provide care for the most rural populations in this Commonwealth.  Furthermore, Pennsylvania is currently home to nine medical degree-granting medical schools, with a new osteopathic medical school set to open in the fall of this year, numerous nursing programs, as well as many academic medical centers and teaching hospitals that train future health care practitioners 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 is acute inpatient, outpatient, emergency, rehabilitation, behavioral health, or other care, our hospitals in Pennsylvania serve a vital mission.

Please consider joining us in celebrating the contributions of hospitals and their employees by recognizing the week of May 12 through May 18, 2024, as "National Hospital Week" in Pennsylvania.

Thank you for your interest and support.
