District 1 celebrates Patient Recognition Week
In honor of National Patient Recognition Week, District 1 Northwest Oklahoma County Health Departments will host an Open House from 1- 3 p.m. on Friday, February 3. The event will take place simultaneously at the Beaver, Custer, Harper, Texas, Woods and Woodward County Health Departments. During the event a tour of the County Health Departments will be offered as well as free blood pressure screenings.
National Patient Recognition Week is observed annually from February 1-7. Healthcare workers take this opportunity to bring positive awareness in providing top patient care and reflect on the commitment made and the importance of keeping the patient satisfaction as a priority at each visit to their health care providers.
“We invite our patients and the community to stop by, enjoy a tour of the building, get to know our staff and enjoy some refreshments,” said Ashley Ferguson, District 1 County Health Department
Regional Administrative Director. “We will take this opportunity to show our appreciation for our patients and thank them for taking the steps to improve the health outcomes in Oklahoma.”
“We’re excited to showcase each County Health Department and encourage the community to inquire about the many services available in our district,” said Ferguson. “The Mobile Wellness Unit will be doing similar events, at various locations throughout our district during the month of
February. Information regarding those dates and times will be shared soon.”
