In honor of National Hospital Week and National Nurses Week, North Arkansas Regional Medical Center (NARMC) has a number of events planned to celebrate May 12-18. The week kicked off with the signing of an official proclamation for the occasion by Harrison Mayor Jerry Jackson. Throughout the week, the NARMC team will enjoy special treats to celebrate.
The proclamation declares May 12-18 as National Hospital Week and National Nurses Week in Harrison, and urges residents to express their appreciation for the people, facilities and technology that makes reliable healthcare possible in our community. It recognizes that a hospital is more than just a place to heal, it is part of the community that fosters health and hope.
“The NARMC team provides exceptional care to our community every day of the year. This special week allows us to highlight the work they do and say thank you,” said Vince Leist, NARMC President and CEO.
“National Nurses Week focuses on the compassion each nurse gives to their profession,” said Sammie Cribbs CNO & COO. “Nurses make a huge contribution to NARMC and our community, and I am proud to be part of our nursing team. We honor every nurse in our community and thank them for their dedication this week.”
