National Hospital Day was originally conceived by a Chicago magazine editor as a public healthcare event that encouraged the public to trust in the city’s hospitals after the Spanish Flu outbreak of 1918, which killed more than 600,000 Americans. The event expanded to an entire week in 1953, and today every state celebrates National Hospital Week, which is sponsored by the American Hospital Association. This annual celebration serves as a reminder that hospitals are foundations of the communities that built them and nurture them, and that hospitals serve people in every community from all walks of life.
