National Hospital Week celebrated at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital

National Hospital Week celebrated at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital

National Hospital Week is designated to celebrate the hope and healing provided by the people in hospitals for the health and well-being of the people and communities they serve.  Celebrations take place all across the nation thanking the dedicated individuals for their contribution toward health care.  At MBSH, employees and providers were shown how much they are appreciated with treats and fun activities throughout the week of May 12 through 18, 2019.

The celebrations at MBSH started on Monday with the leadership team distributing the “Years of Caring” ribbons along with candy and Clementine oranges to the managers of their respective departments.  Employees proudly wore their ribbons to show the number of years they have worked for the BJC HealthCare organization.

At lunchtime on Tuesday, employees got to take advantage of the gorgeous weather with an ice cream social on the outdoor Cafeteria Patio.  There was a wide variety of ice cream flavors and toppings, and as an added perk, Elizabeth Greiner, massage therapist from the Therapy & Wellness Center offered courtesy chair massages while the ice cream was being dished up.

Wednesday’s celebration started off the morning right with a variety of Starbucks® coffee flavors and donuts galore.  The aroma of fresh-brewed coffee drew employees to the conference room where it was being served with an abundance of donuts and pastries.

On Thursday, the gauntlet was thrown down with a Skittles® Day Costume Contest.  Participating Departments were challenged to use a Skittles® color for the theme of their costumes, and the winning group was able to select a recipient from all department managers to receive a whipped cream pie-in-the-face.  Judging was performed by the Healthcare Week planning team with Patient Access receiving first place, Surgery receiving second place, Wound Care receiving third place with New Hope receiving honorable mention.

The week of celebrations wrapped-up with a lip-smacking Bar-B-Q lunch on Friday outside at the Maintenance building.  Maintenance crew grilled hamburgers and hotdogs to go with delicious sides and cookies prepared by Cuba Lakes Country Club.  The pie-in-the-face event took place at high-noon with Patient Access Representatives Dee Bell and Alisha Morgan representing their department by throwing the pies in the faces of Rachel Thomure, Patient Access Supervisor and Angelia Barton, Patient Access Manager.  Everyone enjoyed the week of fun activities in celebration and appreciation of all those who provide healthcare to the people of our communities.
