Wythe County Community Hospital (WCCH) proudly joined the American Nurses Association (ANA) and other healthcare
organizations around the country in celebrating National Nurses Week May 6 – 12 to honor the millions of men and women in the nursing profession who have dedicated their lives to caring for others.
Established in 1954, National Nurses Week recognizes nurses and their strong commitment to and fervent compassion for their patients.

The hospital held a series of events throughout the week to mark the occasion.
“Wythe County Community Hospital is proud to celebrate our many nurses, who serve as dedicated and dependable caregivers for patients and their loved ones throughout their healthcare journey,” said Theresa Dix, chief nursing officer at Wythe County Community Hospital. Whether a routine check-up at your provider’s office, an outpatient visit or a trip to our emergency department with a hospital stay, our nurses provide compassionate, individualized care, knowing that every patient is unique.”
