National Hospital Week May 6-12

A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal; it is 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 optimistic community. National Hospital Week (May 6-12, 2018) celebrates hospitals and the men and women who, day in and day out, support the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication.

“Now more than ever, hospitals play a vital role in improving community health across the nation,” said CEO Tracy Conroy. “This extends far beyond strictly providing medical care. Daviess Community Hospital is taking this week to thank all of the dedicated individuals – physicians, nurses, therapists, food service workers, volunteers, administrators and so many more – for their commitment.”

At Daviess Community Hospital, the event is intended to celebrate our team members who not only provide skillful care, but also provide empathy and compassion to patients and families every day. It’s a great time to say thank you to the knowledgeable and dedicated team of nearly 580 employees at DCH.

National Hospital Week, first and foremost, is a celebration of people,” CEO Tracy Conroy said. “We’re extremely proud of each member of our staff. We recognize the importance of their ability to form relationships with our patients while taking care of them, and providing guidance to meet their health care needs.”

Daviess Community Hospital has been serving Daviess county and the surrounding communities since 1913. For more information about DCH, visit or call 812-254-2760.
