Toolkit: National Hospital Week 2023

National Hospital Week is May 7–13. HAP encourages member hospitals and health systems, elected officials, and all Pennsylvanians to join hospitals across the nation in celebrating hospitals, health systems, and health care workers and the innovative ways they are supporting and staying connected to their communities.

For 2023, the American Hospital Association (AHA) will continue the “We Are Healthcare” theme. The AHA, HAP, and member hospitals will highlight the value that hospitals bring their communities throughout Pennsylvania and the nation.

During and leading up to National Hospital Week, HAP encourages Pennsylvania hospitals to showcase the unique ways in which they are benefitting your communities. HAP also invites all Pennsylvanians to celebrate what your local hospital means to you.

The following guidelines and resources are intended to assist with these efforts.
