Mon Health System Celebrates Nurses Week and Hospital Week
Mon Health System is celebrating National Nurses Week, May 6-12, and National Hospital Week, May 7-13, with celebrations across the health system. This week is an opportunity to highlight the innovative ways healthcare staff support the needs of our patients and show appreciation for their continued dedication and commitment to enhancing the health of the communities we serve, one person at a time.

Across Mon Health System, leaders have planned celebratory events for employees which will include themed dress up days, outdoor activities including giant inflatables, picnics, food trucks, pet therapy, and other engaging activities. Gifts, notes of gratitude, and more will also be distributed to staff throughout the week to show appreciation.

“Nurses Week and Hospital Week are important times for us to recognize and celebrate the incredible contributions of our employees who work tirelessly to provide exceptional care to our patients each and every day,” said Katie Davison, Chief Human Resources Officer at Mon Health System. “We are proud to stand beside our employees and show appreciation for their dedication and hard work this week and always. Hospital and Nurses Week is 24/7/365 in our eyes.”

Mon Health Medical Center is also proud to celebrate its 80th anniversary this year, as it was officially established by an act of the Monongalia County Court in 1943. Staff are encouraged to join in anniversary celebrations by dressing up for ‘80s Day on Monday, May 8.

“From our nurses and physicians to our administrative staff and support teams, every member of our organization plays a critical role in delivering high-quality care and improving patient outcomes. This week and year-round, we express our gratitude and show our support for our remarkable staff,” said David Goldberg, President and CEO of Mon Health System and Executive Vice President of Vandalia Heath.

To end the celebratory week, Mon Health System and the West Virginia Junior College will be unveiling the NEW Ron and Stephanie Stovash Mobile Nursing Lab on wheels on Friday, May 12 from 10 AM-1 PM at Mon Health Medical Center in Morgantown. Mon Health System staff and the public are invited to join for tours, music, food trucks, and exciting ticket giveaways to Taylor Swift and Luke Bryan.

Following the kickoff event, the Mobile Nursing Lab will hit the road for tours and a chance to meet with the Mon Health System Recruiting Team. On Wednesday, May 17, the lab will be at Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital in Weston from 10 AM-1 PM and Mon Health Marion Neighborhood Hospital in White Hall at 3:30 PM. It will then finish the tours at Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital in Kingwood on Thursday, May 18 from 10 AM-1 PM.
