Nurses and Hospital Week Wraps Up on Maui
By Maui Now Staff
Maui Memorial Medical Center recently culminated its Nurses Week and Hospital Week with a special May Day celebration featuring a lei-making competition, Hawaiian food, and music by Amy Hanaialiʻi and Eric Gilliom.
The week was marked with recognition ceremonies including the annual “Blessing of the Hands” ceremony that brought together staff from throughout the hospital with several hospital chaplains who offered verses from multiple religions before the official blessing with ti leaves and salt from Kalaupapa, Molokaʻi.
“Our entire staff gives of themselves day in and day out, heart and soul,” said MMMC Chief Executive Officer Wes Lo. “This week we were honored to give back to them through special activities and spiritual encouragement, while acknowledging the incredible work that they do.”
