National Hospital Week is upon us once again and Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital (RPMH) would like to leverage this opportunity to share with the community information about its dedicated team and the healthcare facilities it provides.
National Hospital Week (May 8-14, 2011) is a nation-wide campaign where thousands of hospitals from across the country celebrate the healthcare professionals and their services that keep our communities healthy. What began in 1921 as the brainchild of a magazine editor who wanted to educate the public about the work of hospitals, National Hospital Week has become one of the nationâs largest healthcare celebrations.
âNational Hospital Week is about recognition of healthcare providers and valuable services hospitals provide to ensure a healthy community,â said Donna Boatright, chief executive officer at RPMH. âThereâs no need to travel great distances for healthcare when Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital is right around the corner and is one of the best hospitals in a rural Texas.â
The healthcare providerâs dedication has been tested over time, yet they remain resilient. Despite one of the most challenging economic climates since the Great Depression, RPMH continues to thrive and adapt to new technologies and treatment options to provide the healthcare services in Nolan County.
Boatright said that many people in the community are not fully aware of the breadth of services available to them, but with a newly redesigned website, RPMH hopes to change that.
"It is important for members of our community to know that we have the ability to care for them with state-of-the-art equipment here at their local hospital,â Boatright explained. âWe have equal capabilities of diagnosing and treating patients as other hospitals miles down the highway. The only difference is weâre right hereâcloser and ready to serve you.â
Each department and service offered by RPMH exemplifies what has become the hallmark of the healthcare in the community. The combined synergy amongst the medical, office and support teams results in the highest quality of care and service to each patient.
"During National Hospital Week, we would also like to express our sincere appreciation to the professionals at Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital who have introduced us to the true wonder of medicine,â said Boatright. âWhen people care, miracles occur.â
