Rutherford Regional Celebrates National Hospital Week

May 11, 2015

RUTHERFORDTON – Rutherford Regional Health System (RRHS) recognizes National Hospital Week May 10-16, an annual commemoration that celebrates the people, organizations and technologies that make trustworthy, reliable healthcare available in communities nationwide. A healthcare tradition since 1921, National Hospital Week commends the contributions that hospital physicians, nurses, staff, and administrators make in big cities, small towns and rural regions across the United States each day. 

This year, the team at RRHS – comprised of over 700 full-time and part-time staff and providers – will unite with the American Hospital Association and 5.6 million healthcare workers from around the county to reflect on our work with a common theme: “Where Miracles Happen Every Day.” RRHS is delighted to be part of this celebration.

Since 1906, RRHS has served the Rutherford County region with a singular mission of making communities healthier. Each day, our staff strives to find new ways to achieve this mission by seeking to enhance quality care and patient safety, expanding the services we provide, improving our patients’ experiences, and reaching out to people in need to ensure that they have access to the care they need to be healthy.  We are proud of what we do – both within our hospital walls and outside of them – to contribute to the health and wellbeing of this region.

“No matter the circumstances of your arrival at RRHS, we are honored to be a part of your life and to have the opportunity to work alongside you and your family in the delivery of your care,” said Cindy Buck, Rutherford Regional’s CEO.  “We take the responsibility of being with you during your best and worst times very seriously – as you welcome a new baby into the world, as you struggle with chronic illness, as you reach exciting wellness milestones, and as you wish a loved one a final farewell.   

“The RRHS team thanks everyone in this community for your support.  We are looking forward to celebrating National Hospital Week, and hope you will join us in recognizing the wonderful staff of physicians, nurses and administrators who help ensure the health of this region every day.”
