Release date: April 27, 2022

La Grange, TX - St. Mark's Medical Center (SMMC) will observe National Hospital Week, May 8 through 14, 2022.

"In celebration of National Hospital Week, we thank our team for their dedication and commitment in caring for and protecting the health of our community, especially in light of the recent public health challenges that we've all faced," said Mark Kimball, President and CEO of SMMC. "A hospital with a team of our caliper is not common in rural America, and it's important that we recognize the benefit that it brings to the community, not just this week, but every day," Kimball continued.

Long esteemed as healing environments, hospitals remain a vital link to ensure the well-being of communities. National Hospital Week applauds the nation's hospitals, healthcare systems and healthcare professionals as they provide essential, innovative frontline care.

"We also take pause this week to thank our community for their ongoing generous support of our efforts to deliver compassionate, quality care; it means the world to our team," said Kimball. "And if you see a member of our team in the community or happen to be on our campus this week, please take a moment to recognize them," said Kimball.

With unprecedented demands on America's health care system from the COVID-19, U.S. hospitals continue to focus on their mission to meet local healthcare needs.

An annual event, National Hospital Week celebrates the history, technology and dedicated professionals that make healthcare facilities examples of trust and caring. Throughout the year, hospitals strive to improve patient care and the patient experience.
