National Hospital Week 2017: May 7-13
The Healing Heart of Health Care

National Hospital Week, the nation’s largest health care event, is a celebration of the history, technology and dedicated professionals that make our hospitals beacons of confidence and care. 

A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal, it is a part of the community that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy community. The Ohio Hospital Association exists to collaborate with its 220 member hospitals and 13 member health systems to ensure a healthy Ohio.

Health care workers such as therapists, nurses, physicians, surgeons, patient advocates, they are all essential to the fulfillment of a hospital's mission.

OHA has recognized health care workers at Ohio hospitals. This year, the nominees of the Albert E. Dyckes Health Care Worker of the Year award will be celebrated at OHA's Annual Meeting Recognition Awards Dinner on Tuesday, June 13.


"We are proud to celebrate Ohio hospitals and their benefits to our communities. Ohio hospitals and health systems through dedicated health care professionals are serving our communities by providing quality health care and community health needs."
Mike Abrams, OHA president and CEO
