CROCKETT – Sunday, May 7 marked the start of National Hospital Week which is recognized as “… the nation’s largest health care event. It is a celebration of the history, technology and dedicated professionals that make our facilities beacons of confidence and care,” according to the American Hospital Association.

On Monday, May 8, Timberlands Healthcare marked the festive occasion with a balloon release, gifts and snacks for the employees who have helped in the Crockett hospital’s resurgence of the in the field of healthcare.

“We wanted to kick this off and say thank you from the executive team for all that you do,” Timberlands CEO Jeff Perry told a large contingent of doctors, nurses and hospital staff on Monday morning.

“Of course, this is called Hospital Week, but it really addresses everyone in healthcare. We wanted to take this time to thank for what you do every day for our patients,” Perry said. “Every single one of you has such an impact on our patients and their family members at probably one of their weakest times – when they are sick or they are ill. You impact people in a huge way and I thank you.”

The CEO added the entire staff at Timberlands made a difference when it came to patient care and expressed his appreciation once again to the men and women working in the healthcare field.

Timberlands Healthcare Communications Specialist Julie Lehr followed Perry and said she also appreciated the entire hospital team.

“Thank you for being here today and being supportive. This is awesome. Each employee will receive an appreciation gift and I have the bags outside. I know everyone is not here so I need for all of the directors to tell me how many employees they have so we can make sure everyone gets a gift bag. We do not want to leave anyone out,” Lehr said.

She further reminded the assembled staff to check their e-mails on a regular basis in order to stay informed about the various activities taking place the week-long celebration.

“Thank you again for all that you do,” she said.

And with that, Perry and Lehr led the hospital team outside for a balloon release to mark the start of National Hospital Week at Timberlands Healthcare.
