— National Hospital Week is May 12-18 and Integris Mayes County Medical Center is taking the chance to celebrate its staff.

The hospital CEO, Doug Weaver, said because of the hospital’s talented and dedicated employees, it is able to provide top-quality healthcare locally.

“At a time when people travel far and wide for health care, we are proud of the fact that we provide the latest in technology and services at our facility,” said Weaver. “Anyone who has been to our hospital knows that our staff works hard to provide superior care and excellent customer service.

“First and foremost, this week is a celebration of people,” said Weaver.  “It’s about recognizing the people who work hard to provide superior health care 24/7. We’re extremely proud of each member of our staff and we recognize the important role they play in making us a trusted health care partner in our community.”

Hospital Week includes a number of events and activities all surrounding this year's theme, ‘A Guiding Light For Change.’

The hospital is selling chances on baskets. Each of the 12 departments in the hospital assembled their own basket, all with a different theme. Cathie Murphy, the hospital’s dietary director, said there is a basket to suit everyone. There is a gardening basket, a fishing basket, a coffee basket and even a Fifty Shades of Grey basket. Tickets may be purchased today until noon.

The money raised from these baskets will benefit the Free Clinic in Pryor.

Baskets can be viewed in the hospital cafeteria and on the hospital’s website, www.integrismayescounty.com.
