Administrative Professionals

Each year, administrative professionals are recognized for their skills and loyalty - attributes almost every office depends upon. Administrative Professionals Day is held annually during the last full week in April and celebrates and raises awareness of administrative professionals and their valued work.

At the hospitals, these individuals include Executive Assistants, Finance and Accounting staff, Human Resources staff, Payroll Clerks and Schedulers.
