The Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) coordinated with Governor Evers’ office to produce an official proclamation
underscoring the important role Wisconsin hospitals play in the health and economic wellbeing of the communities they serve. As part of its national hospital week coordinated messaging strategy, WHA has posted the proclamation to its website and shared it on all its social media pages.
In addition to recognizing the reliable health care services Wisconsin hospitals provide to their communities, the governor’s proclamation cites the extraordinary efforts of the state’s hospitals to fight COVID-19. “Wisconsin’s hospitals continue to serve as both our frontline and our last line of defense against in the fight against COVID-19, consistently stepping up to respond to surges of COVID-19 patients requiring complex care, while continuing to deliver babies, attend to accident victims, and treat chronic diseases,” the document reads in part.
The governor also credits hospitals and health systems for their role in vaccinating Wisconsinites against the virus in every corner of the state.
The governor’s proclamation calls attention, too, to the important role hospitals and health systems play in the state’s economy as well as the significant community benefits and charity care that hospitals provide to their friends and neighbors throughout the state.
WHA invites member hospitals to share Gov. Evers’ hospital week proclamation with their stakeholders through appropriate channels to reinforce their commitment to their patients and communities.
