Have fun, relax, during Hospital Week May 9-15
Wednesday, May 11, 2022
WVU Hospitals (WVUH) salutes its dedicated, hardworking employees with a week full of activities aimed at having fun and recharging during Hospital Week, May 9-15. Here’s a run-down of some of the festivities:
As a special lunchtime treat, food trucks will be on campus each day starting at 11 a.m. They will be located next to the Cancer Institute and near the Ruby loading dock.
Also, Bravo! has planned a different theme for each day and employees are encouraged to participate and dress up for each one. There will be a contest for “best dressed” each day. (Note: WVU Medicine Dress and Appearance Policy should be followed.)
Learn more about the themed days and how to vote for your favorite outfit.
Employees can enjoy discounts at Friends Gift Shop, Starbucks, Ruby Cafe, Neuro Cafe, and the WVU Pharmacies, as well as area businesses.
