Sharing Love and Music With Caregivers for National Hospital Week

At Musicians On Call (MOC) we serve the nation’s hardworking caregivers and hospital staff year-round and deliver live music through our bedside and virtual programs. This year, in recognition of National Hospital Week, MOC showed appreciation to caregivers and hospital workers during Concert for Caregivers at Analog at Hutton Hotel in Nashville. This exclusive, intimate show featured award-winning artists and hit songwriters Dierks Bentley, Charles Esten and Jon Nite, and honored their continuous sacrifice for the health and safety of their communities with music.

“It’s part of our mission at Musicians On Call to bring joy and relief through live music to the hardworking hospital workers across the country during their long shifts. During National Hospital Week, it’s important we take a moment to express our deep gratitude for all that they do to care for their communities,” said MOC President & CEO Pete Griffin. “We are happy to have the American Hospital Association and Southwest Airlines helping us show love to these dedicated caregivers. And a special thanks to Dierks Bentley, Charles Esten and Jon Nite for generously giving their time to make it a night to remember.”

Concert For Caregivers



In a room filled with hospital staff from facilities throughout Middle Tennessee, Bentley, Esten and Nite entertained the crowd with performances and stories from some of their biggest hits and new releases, including “We Were Us,” “Living,” “I Hold On” and “A Little Right Now.” By the end of the night, the crowd was on their feet singing along to a few fan favorites. The American Hospital Association, Musicians On Call’s Healthcare Community Partner, and Southwest Airlines® helped make the unforgettable night possible.

“The nation has seen firsthand how our health care workers step up by caring for patients each and every day,” said Rick Pollack, AHA president and CEO. “We are proud to partner with Musicians On Call this National Hospital Week to thank caregivers and health care workers for all the work they do to improve and sustain the health of all of those in their communities.”

During National Hospital Week, the American Hospital Association is distributing the recorded concert to their network of 5,000 member hospitals and health systems. Caregivers from hospitals across the country were also nominated for a chance to fly to Nashville on Southwest, attend the show and enjoy a stay at Hutton Hotel, Nashville’s original boutique hotel. Caregivers from Arizona, Louisiana and New Mexico were selected to participate in this one-of-a-kind experience.
