ELKINS—Davis Health System is celebrating National Hospital Week, May 9-13, along with healthcare facilities across the nation by celebrating health, hope and healing.
“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,” said Mark Doak, CEO and President of Davis Health System.
“From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optimistic community,” he said. “We’re extremely proud of each member of our staff and recognize the important role they play in extending a sense of trust to our patients and our communities.”
Davis Health System includes Davis Memorial Hospital, Broaddus Hospital and Mansfield Place, as well as various clinics and services which work collaboratively with other community healthcare providers. With almost 1,000 employees, Davis Health System is the largest healthcare provider in the five-county region with an estimated state-wide economic impact of $350 million.
“However, it is the individual staff member, whether physician or dietician, nurse or admissions clerk, that makes a difference to the patient,” Doak said. “All of them working together, putting patients first, reflects the true spirit of Hospital Week.”
