Texas County Memorial Hospital celebrated its exceptional staff during the nationally recognized “National Hospital Week” from May 8 through May 12.

On Monday, popcorn and lemonade were available to all employees along with a hospital and clinic scavenger activities hunt. On Tuesday, t-shirts were distributed to all employees.
An employee health fair was held on Wednesday and Thursday. All employees were offered free lab draws, including CBC, CMP, TSH and a lipid panel. Available at the fair were blood pressure checks, pulse oximetry and heart health, coronary artery disease risk factor screening and physical therapy lifting.
