Years of emergency preparedness planning meant Colorado hospitals could care for their communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This year celebrating #hospitalweek means that much more - remember to tell your local hospital thanks! Happy Hospital Week!
Thanks @COHospitalAssn for testifying against HB 21-1191 and for keeping hospitals safe. Some of us need to use hospitals. Staff also deserve safety. @CDPHE @HealthierColo #coleg @LontineHD1 @Kyle_Mullica @YadiraCaraveo @Kennedy4CO @DavidDOrtizCO @BriannaForCO @Jackson4CO
This #hospitalweek, we are deeply grateful for all our hospitals and caregivers, and their hard work and dedication to keeping patients in our communities healthy. Happy Hospital Week! #healthcareheroes #thankyounurses
In addition to #hospitalweek, we are also celebrating #nursesweek! Nurses are at the very heart of what hospitals do and we are so grateful for their skills, talents, and compassion. This week, and every week, #thankyounurses!
This #HospitalWeek, we are especially grateful for the 100+ hospitals and health systems across the state that have dedicated themselves to caring for Colorado throughout this pandemic. To our hospitals and the heroes that work in them, we can never thank you enough.

#Sepsis can affect anyone, at any time but it does tend to strike more often people at the extremes of life, the very old and the very young. As a result, children, particularly premature babies, can be more susceptible to developing sepsis. #pediatricsepsisweek
