Thanks To Health Care Professionals

May 4, 2019

Editor: Working in a hospital means seeing people during their most vulnerable and challenging times — and also at their absolute best. Our patients experience joy, grief and countless hours of waiting, hoping and praying for loved ones — and we support them through it all. People don’t choose careers in healthcare because it’s easy work. Hospitals are open 24/7 every single day of the year. Working in a hospital means crazy shifts, giving up holidays and driving through nasty weather when your kids’ school closes but the hospital stays open. Accidents happen, people get sick, babies arrive unexpectedly, and we’ve got to be ready for them all. People choose to work in hospitals because they care. During National Hospital Week, May 12 through 18, Geisinger would like to thank all the healthcare professionals and other hospital workers who provide the high-quality, compassionate care we’re known for. Healthcare is more than a job. It’s a calling. And we’re deeply grateful that it called to each member of our exceptional team. Please join us in thanking hospital workers everywhere for their tireless devotion and outstanding service.
