May 7-13 is National Hospital Week, an opportunity to recognize the health care workers, hospitals, and health systems that improve and save lives in our communities.

This year is especially important as we recognize and celebrate the selfless health care workers who continue striving to provide great care to patients in the face of continued workforce and financial challenges.

Texas’ teaching hospitals are important pillars of our communities thanks to the tireless efforts of our health care workers who train the next generation of health care workers and build trust with the people of Texas through the excellent care, support, and education they offer.

At Teaching Hospitals of Texas, we support and advocate on behalf of the dedicated health care workers who bring quality health care to communities in Texas each and every day.

There are over 6.3 million health care workers across the country, all working towards a greater goal to provide vital and lifesaving care every single day. From routine health checks to complex treatment to emergency care, health care workers play an active role in improving the health and wellbeing of their communities and the country as a whole.

A longstanding tradition, National Hospital Day was established in 1921 and later changed to National Hospital Week in 1953.
