"The people who meet the daily health care needs of this nation are a committed, compassionate group of individuals united by their calling to help others," Carol Friesen, President/CEO at CAMC said. "Health care is changing to meet new challenges, but our commitment is an enduring source of pride and confidence."
The week-long celebration is designed celebrate the many people who have made the medical center's recent accomplishments a reality.
In recognition of the people that make quality and reliable health care possible in communities across the State of Nebraska, Governor Heineman proclaims the week of May 2-6 as Nebraska Hospital Week in coordination with the American Hospital Association's National Hospital Week. National Hospital Week 2011 is the nation's largest annual health care event.
"It's always been about our people. Change is inevitable but our goals and our mission are constant. Our people want the very best for our patients and that's what they bring to the medical center every day of the year," Friesen said.
National Hospital Week began in 1921 and, over the decades, has helped revolutionize the public view of hospital. The health care industry employees more than 14 million workers throughout the United States, including over 41,000 in Nebraska.
