Rumford Hospital celebrates Hospital Week


RUMFORD — The annual celebrations of Nurses’ Week and Hospital Week overlap each year, creating nearly two weeks of special events and honors at Rumford Hospital.

For 2010 the organizing committee planned a contest for nurses wearing their white uniforms, a free breakfast, ice cream sundae parties, a free raffle for prizes, a match the baby picture contest, A Minute to Win It game, winding up with the announcement of the 2010 GEMS with an afternoon party in the cafeteria.

One of the most looked-forward-to Hospital Week events is the annual barbecue and this year’s was no exception. The Rumford Hospital kitchen produced salads and side dishes, while a few management and staff members got into the spirit of the day over hot barbecue grills under a tent in the parking lot.
