    Employees and visitors to University of Louisville Hospital


    UofL Hospital will honor the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military. Staff and visitors will observe a moment of silence, and recognize the sacrifice of each branch of the U.S. military.  

    Team members and visitors are invited to remember a friend or family member who sacrificed to protect our freedom by writing the person’s name, branch of the military and conflict in which they fought on a special banner. The banner will be in the lobby of the hospital from Thursday, May 24 until Tuesday, May 29.

    UofL Hospital will fly the American flag at half-staff beginning at the event Friday until Tuesday.
