In recognition of National Hospital Week, Gateway  expresses sincere gratitude for all hospital workers.

A stay in the hospital can be scary and let’s be honest, unpleasant to even think about. It’s the hospital workers who change this to a more pleasant experience.  The teamwork of a hospital’s clinical and support workers is essential for the healing of a patient. It could be the doctor with the great bedside manner, the social worker who took the time to listen, or the custodian that made sure your window was clean and clear so that you could see the sunshine; all of these people made an impact on your experience.

As a healthcare provider in substance use disorder treatment, Gateway recognizes the important role that hospital workers play in assisting with the detection and guidance of patients with a substance use disorder.

“The collaboration we have with hospitals is crucial in our mission of reducing substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health problems through effective and efficient treatment programs. Gateway extends its’ sincere gratitude to all hospital workers for the impact they have in the lives of those persons struggling with mental illness and substance use disorders,” said Dr. Thomas Britton, President and CEO of Gateway Foundation.
