NEWNAN, Ga. (May 9, 2011) – Piedmont Newnan Hospital is calling on the community to help recognize healthcare professionals during National Nurses Week and National Hospital Week. Individuals are asked to take a few minutes to thank their favorite nurse or health care worker via the hospital’s Facebook page.
“It takes much more than just hard work and good medicine to deliver the quality of care that our patients expect,” said Piedmont Newnan Hospital CEO Michael Bass. “The bottom line is, patients remember the compassion and the care that they receive from our physicians, nurses, employees and volunteers. This is a small, but meaningful way for us as a community to show our appreciation.”
Anyone wishing to recognize a nurse or hospital employee is invited to visit the hospital Facebook page at facebook.com/PiedmontNewnanHospital, become a fan, and share your appreciation with a special nurse or healthcare worker who has touched your life. Written messages may also be mailed to Piedmont Newnan Hospital to the attention of “Thank You Week” at 60 Hospital Rd, Newnan, Georgia 30263. All messages will be forwarded to the specific individuals or departments indicated.
At Piedmont Newnan Hospital, over 230 physicians and 800 employees in a variety of supporting disciplines serve Coweta County and surrounding communities day and night, all year long.
