Good health. We all want it – a life where our bodies remain strong and able, allowing us to do the things we most enjoy. And, there’s never been a time when good health and wellbeing have been more essential for our human connections, whether it is the opportunity to hug our loved ones, meet the first grandchild, play with our teams, or gather with friends again.
At Bayfront Health Brooksville and Spring Hill, we understand how important your health is, so whenever you need us, we’re dedicated to helping you get well and live healthier. Delivering on this mission takes tremendous resources, coordination, and the commitment of a skilled and compassionate team.
Many essential workers keep hospitals open and running 24/7 – always available for your family. Housekeepers and maintenance workers keep our facilities safe, clean, and operational. Registration staff welcome you and case managers make sure you are discharged safely when your visit is over. In between, physicians review your condition, make diagnoses, order care, and perform procedures that can save your life or improve your condition. Nurses provide care at the bedside to help ensure better outcomes, recovery, and comfort. Surgical, imaging, and other technicians perform important tests and procedures. Lab techs, pharmacy workers, therapists, supply chain managers, educators, and so many more people work together to make sure you have access to the medical care you need.
The people inside the walls of Bayfront Health Brooksville and Spring Hill aren’t just skilled professionals and hard-working support teams. This past year, against a global pandemic, they have been heroes in our midst, unwavering in the fight for the health of their patients and the wellbeing of our community.
So I hope you will join us during National Hospital Week, May 9 – 15, 2021, as we salute and honor our local hospital team along with hospitals and healthcare workers across this country and around the world. Take time to thank your doctors and nurses and all of the others who are here for you – always.
