Celebrating Health Care Workers Everywhere – It’s Hospital Week!

To begin, we want to start by showing appreciation to the staff at South Sound Behavioral Hospital. You all work so hard, and leadership appreciates everything you do!

Sunday, May 10, 2020, kicked off Hospital Week, a week-long celebration of appreciation for hospital staff. Health care workers play vital roles ranging from those in the business office and operations to those on the front lines working directly with patients.

In a world of uncertainty, South Sound Behavioral Hospitals staff remain to be impervious. Our MHT’s, Nurses, Doctors, Social Workers, Counselors, Receptionists, Kitchen Staff, Housekeeping, Security, Maintenance, Discharge Planners, HIM team, IT, and Administration have all responded exceedingly well. They are showing up during a particular time in healthcare history that is unlike anything we have ever seen in our lifetime, and we are in awe of how well they have adapted to our ever-changing new normal. Many have had to revise work schedules, learn to navigate telehealth and remote video conferencing for meetings, work overtime, or pull a double shift, all the while continuing to show compassion for each other and the patients.

Many of you go home exhausted from the day and scared for the next, but return ready to do their part. There is no doubt that healthcare workers are essential, needed, and devoted to their field; they are true superheroes!

From everyone here at SSBH to our fellow healthcare family all around the world, we recognize you, appreciate you, and honor you.

Happy Hospital Week!
