Cuero Health: Cuero Regional Hospital Celebrates National Nurses Week & National Hospital Week

Cuero, TX— A hospital is more than a place where people go to heal; it is a part of the community that fosters health and represents hope. During National Nurses Week ( May 6-12) and National Hospital Week (May 9 – 15), Cuero Regional Hospital honors the hundreds of caring staff members & nurses at both the hospital and supporting clinics/facilities who work together 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to deliver hope and ensure quality medical care is available to all.

“From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, Cuero Regional Hospital is critical to providing the latest medical services to ensure a healthy and optimistic community. During National Nurses Week and Hospital Week, we celebrate over 50 years of history serving this community, our technology/advances, but, most importantly our people – the dedicated professionals that make our all of our Cuero Health facilities beacons of confidence and care,” said Lynn Falcone, CEO of Cuero Health. “This year is particularly meaningful given the staff’s resilience throughout this pandemic, as well as being nationally recognized as a Top 100 Rural & Community Hospital by The Chartis Group. There is much to recognize and celebrate!”

National Hospital Week was established in 1953, and this year it will be celebrated from May 9 through May 15. The dates overlap the celebration of National Nurses Week (May 6 through 12), chosen to coincide with Florence Nightingale’s birthday, honoring her role in revolutionizing hospital care in the mid 1800’s.

“For National Nurses Week (May 6-12), Cuero Regional Hospital joins with other hospitals and communities to recognize and celebrate the outstanding work of nurses who deliver expert, compassionate care to patients around the clock, 365 days a year,” said Judy Krupala, CNO at Cuero Regional Hospital. “This week I hope you will join me in paying tribute to these amazing professionals and thanking them for all they do.”


“We’re extremely proud of each member of our Cuero Health staff and we recognize the important role they play in extending a sense of trust to our patients and our communities,” said Denise McMahan, Assistant Administrator at Cuero Regional Hospital. “During National Hospital Week, we look forward to rewarding the staff with theme days, snow cones, a community drive-by parade around the hospital, a “drive-in” burger night, t-shirts and more!”

For over 50 years, Cuero Regional Hospital has been proud to serve DeWitt and the surrounding counties with high-quality hospital and clinical services that continue to expand, year after year. “This Hospital Week, we thank all of the dedicated individuals — physicians, nurses, therapists, business office, housekeepers, food service workers, volunteers, administrators and so many more — for following their calling and being committed to the health and well-being of the vibrant communities we serve,” said Falcone.
