Blessing Hospital hosts employee appreciation picnic
Blessing Hospital held its annual hospital week celebration picnic on Thursday.
Hospitals across the country celebrated hospital week to show appreciation for healthcare employees.
Blessing is Quincy's largest employer with about 3,000 employees.
CEO Maureen Kahn says it's important to show appreciation for employees' hard work.
"We try and say thank you every day and express our gratitude, but when it comes to this big week we try and figure out what can we do that is fun, treat them to a meal and this week we are giving out water bottles," said Kahn.
Kahn says Blessing is also working to replace water fountains with water bottle filling stations throughout the hospital.
That will help promote the use of water bottles and cut down on waste.
