Lima Memorial Health System will be hosting a number of activities to celebrate National Hospital Week, May 12 - 18, 2024. 12 individuals will be specially recognized as Champions of Great Care at a Great Care Celebration on Monday, May 13. These individuals were nominated by their peers for going the extra mile each and every day for patients and their families, as well as for their fellow associates. Additionally, Lima Memorial Health System’s leadership team will serve an appreciation meal for all associates and volunteers on all three shifts. A Blessing of the Hands will also be held throughout the week that will include an anointing and special prayer for hospital caregivers.

“It is an honor and a privilege to have such an extraordinary team here at LMHS,” shared Mike Swick, President & CEO of Lima Memorial Health System. “Our associates truly demonstrate the exceptional care we have strived to provide our community for more than 125 years.” 

About National Hospital Week

Recognized as the nation’s largest healthcare event, National Hospital Week dates back to 1921 when it was suggested by a magazine editor who hoped a community-wide celebration would alleviate public fears about hospitals. The celebration, launched in Chicago, succeeded in promoting trust and goodwill among members of the public and eventually spread to facilities across the country.
