National Hospital Week is the biggest healthcare event celebrated each year. During this week, hospitals around the nation pause to thank and recognize their employees. This year, the National Hospital Week theme is “A Week of Thanks,” which is held May 10-16.

In honor of National Hospital Week, Schneider Regional Medical Center (SRMC) thanks all of its hardworking employees for the vital work being done every day at the Roy L Schneider Hospital on St. Thomas and Myrah Keating Smith Community Health Center on St. John.

Due to social distancing guidelines, SRMC held virtual celebrations all weeklong to recognize its employees for their years of dedicated service to the organization.

SRMC’s Interim CEO Dr. Luis Amaro, said: “We are extremely proud of our hardworking staff at SRMC, especially our heroic nurses, physicians, respiratory technicians, medical technicians, patient care technicians, dieticians and other hospital workers who care for our patients under these extraordinary circumstances.”

“Now more than ever, with the emergence of COVID-19, this week allowed us to celebrate our healthcare workers for the risks they take every day to improve our patients’ lives and to keep our community safe and healthy,” said Dr. Amaro.

SRMC is proud of the community it serves and will continue to provide optimal care every day, even during these unprecedented and challenging times. #We Are Here For You!
