National Hospital & Nurses Week

It’s that time of year again when we celebrate the nation’s hospitals and health systems and the dedicated nurses who provide lifesaving care. This year National Hospital Week runs May 7 – 13 while National Nurses Week kicks things off a day earlier running from May 6 – 12. 


The theme for this year is “H is for Heroes,” which plays off that white and blue “H” sign you see on the highway letting you know that not only is a hospital nearby, but so are heroes. From the operating room to the cafeteria, hospitals are full of amazing people who work every day to serve their patients and communities.


And while we aim to recognize everyone in the hospital, National Nurses Week also provides a special opportunity to honor the devoted nurses at the bedside who help deliver lifesaving care in a multitude of care settings. Throughout the period of May 6 – 13, SCHA will be recognizing South Carolina’s healthcare heroes on our social media channels and offering special discounts and giveaways from some of our partners below.
