Happy National Hospital Week

May 14, 2015 - We join with thousands of hospitals around the country to celebrate National Hospital Week. This year’s theme is: “Where Miracles Happen Every Day,” which is fitting because that’s what happens every day in our corner of the healthcare world. This week gives hospital employees the opportunity to reflect upon the privilege it is to be a part of daily miracles.

A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal. It is an integral 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 and happy community.

Whether you’re a hospital patient or you’ve visited one of our physician offices, we hope you know how much we have appreciated the opportunity to serve you. Thank you for choosing your local community hospital when it comes to making important decisions about your well-being. It brings an indescribable sense of pride and joy to be able to provide healthcare to you and your family.

It’s no coincidence that Hospital Week also coincides with the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. She was famous for going the extra mile when it came to taking care of her patients. She was known as “The Lady with the Lamp,” as she would make extra rounds in the night with her lantern, checking on her patients, minimizing discomfort and offering care and compassion to all who called out her name.

It is Florence Nightingale’s example and her spirit of compassion and care that we strive for every day at Bingham Memorial Hospital and all our physician offices. As we celebrate this week, thank you again for your support and patronage as we prepare to embark on another year of providing exquisite healthcare to our friends and neighbors in southeast Idaho.

From providing medical care in all of our healthcare facilities to running vital programs in our community, we are committed to supporting the miracle of health and well-being.
