This week, May 10-16, is both National Hospital Week and National Nursing Home Week. This is a chance in our busy lives to recognize how fortunate we are as a community for the 385 employees (your neighbors, friends and family) who work to keep our hospital and nursing home open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year long, year after year; for members of the board of directors, service area board, foundation and auxiliary who stay informed and give many hours to strengthening the organization; and for the many volunteers who add that personal touch to the care and services provided at South Peninsula Hospital and SPH Long Term Care.

Thank you to a great staff for all you do. Thank you to the board of directors for your vision and dedication. Thank you to the service area board for your willingness to serve. Thank you to the SPH Foundation for your support. Thank you to the auxiliary for your energy and contributions.

Thank you to the volunteers for your never ending hours. Thank you to the many partner providers and agencies which enhance or complete the continuum of care in the community.

And most importantly, thank you to the community for supporting your local community hospital and nursing home.
