National Hospital & Nursing Home Week Puts Spotlight on People - Archived
A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal, it is a part of the community that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optimistic community. That’s why the 2012 National Hospital Week theme is “Making Miracles Happen.”
“National Hospital Week, first and foremost, is a celebration of people, “Rick Davis, CEO of Central Peninsula Hospital, said. “We’re extremely proud of each member of our staff and we recognize the important role they play in extending a sense of trust to our patients and our communities by exemplifying our values of compassion, integrity, respect, service, stewardship and excellence.”
This year we are bringing a national health leader, Zonya Foco, RD to share “The Power of One Good Habit” with our community and our staff on Tuesday, May 8th from 7-9 p.m. in the Denali Conference Room. Please RSVP to Jan Johnson at 714-4724 to attend. There is a $5 charge at the door. Zonya is recognized as America’s Nutrition Leader and is the creator of the “Diet Free” program CPH has adopted.

A Blessing of the Pets will be held at Heritage Place, our continuing care facility, on Thursday, May 10th from 1:30 to 2:30 in the outdoor garden patio. Some of our pet partners will be paying visits to our residents after the blessing.
