Hospital Week 2014 Celebrated
May 21, 2014
BREWTON, AL - D.W. McMillan Memorial Hospital celebrated National Hospital Week by recognizing their employees. National Hospital Week recognizes the men and women who, day in and day out, support the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication.
Now more than ever, hospitals play a vital role in improving community health across the nation. This extends far beyond strictly providing medical care. Hospital week is an opportunity to thank all of the dedicated individuals - physicians, nurses, therapists, radiologists, facility service workers, food service workers, volunteers, administrative departments, pharmacists, laboratory workers and so many more - for their commitment.
"We have such a great staff at D.W. McMillan Memorial Hospital," said Chris Griffin, hospital administrator. "It's nice to be able to stop a moment and thank everyone for their hard work throughout the year."
The hospital's HR department chose a Western theme for the 2014 event. D.W. McMillan Memorial Hospital staff members attended a root beer float social, BBQ chuck wagon and hit the ol' waterin' hole to wet their whistle.
