The observance of National Hospital Week, May 10-16, provides an opportunity for the medical profession to aid the nation's hospitals in developing better understanding of their services to the American people. Emphasizing the theme "More Roads to Recovery," the program this year will endeavor to explain how improvements in hospital care are making recent advances in medical science meaningful to every patient. This is an especially appropriate time for tours of hospital facilities, talks to community groups, radio and television programs, and newspaper announcements. National Hospital Week offers a splendid opportunity for cooperation between physicians and hospitals in creating greater appreciation of the entire medical team.
