For more than a century, hospitals have played a central role in our nation’s healthcare system, serving as a key community anchor institution caring for and connecting millions of people across the country. Today, hospitals are an economic mainstay supporting 16.5 million jobs across the country.
Locally, Cullman Regional provides the following to our community:
- More than $200 million in overall economic impact on the local economy
- More than $16 million in total community benefit including charity care; non-reimbursed Medicaid; community screenings, education and events; support for schools, non-profits, Good Samaritan Health Clinic and more
- Supports more than 2,100 jobs directly or indirectly throughout the entire State of Alabama
At Cullman Regional, we take pride in serving our community and strive to provide the highest quality healthcare for our patients and their families. Join us May 12-18 as we celebrate National Hospital Week 2019!
Hosted by the American Hospital Association (AHA), National Hospital Week celebrates hope and healing, and the hospitals, health systems, and the women and men who support the health and well-being of their communities through dedication and care from the heart. Celebrating National Hospital Week also provides an opportunity to thank all the dedicated individuals – physicians, nurses, therapists, engineers, food service workers, volunteers, administrators, and so many more – for their amazing contributions.
