Jackson Health System is culminating Hospital Week: The Virtual Experience with a LIVE Virtual DJ Party. All Jackson employees on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic have been invited to the celebration, which will be broadcast on computer monitors in units and offices throughout the hospitals, clinics, urgent care centers, and other Jackson facilities.

The three-hour live virtual party will be hosted at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Alamo Building and broadcast live on the Zoom platform.

National Hospital Week celebrates the importance of hospitals and healthcare workers across the nation. Now more than ever, this observance takes on a very special meaning, giving everyone an opportunity to celebrate the important role our hospitals and frontline healthcare workers play to support the needs of our community during the pandemic. To celebrate our hospitals and frontline workers, Jackson Health System launched a series of virtual experiences throughout the week, which included a meditation session, a Zumba class, and virtual vacations.
