Every year, Healthcare Week is celebrated nationwide during the second week of May. Memorial Hospital recognizes this week in May to celebrate staff members of Memorial Hospital, Memorial Medical Clinics, and Hancock County Senior and Childcare Services. This year a planning committee from members of all entities decided to base this year’s theme on “Outstanding in Our Field.”
The theme “Outstanding in Our Field” came easy to the planning committee as Memorial has so much to be proud of. From doctors and nurses to technicians and administrators, it takes a team of exceptional individuals to meet everyone’s healthcare needs. Memorial has a team of professionals who go above and beyond each and every day to provide outstanding healthcare for its patients.
This year’s Healthcare Week festivities will include a food truck coming to the Memorial Hospital campus, treats for every employee, games, and more.
In conjunction with providing outstanding healthcare, Memorial has received a 5-star rating for the past three years in a row in patient satisfaction from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Of the 3,478 hospitals rated, Memorial Hospital is one of only 263 hospitals to achieve a five-star rating in patient experience. This equates to ranking in the top 8% of hospitals nationwide. Most recently, Memorial was honored as the 2023 Outstanding Rural Health Organization by the National Rural Health Association (NRHA).
