Hospitals, schools need more help
To the editor:
In this post-9/11 world, hospitals play a pivotal role. In times of need, people look to the hospital for assistance and health care. Yet, Maryland hospitals can't function without the hard work the more than 80,000 hospital employees provide 24/7.
A hospital staffed with caring employees is a wonderful prescription for a community's good health. While we often take these selfless individuals for granted, these caregivers are the unsung heroes in our midst.
As we celebrate Hospital Week (May 6-12), it gives all of us a chance to recognize the many contributions our hospitals and their employees make to our lives and well-being.
