Grateful Patient

Our faith-based mission to provide care to all who are in need, regardless of their ability to pay, is what our organization was built on - the belief that gratitude and generosity can change lives. And now, 150 years later, we continue to experience how these values support and advance hope - hope for patients in all phases of their journey, hope for the people who see them through it and hope for generations yet to come.

Our doctors, clinicians and volunteers immerse themselves into being the difference for our patients and their families. When you make a gift in their honor you're giving more than hope to the thousands who'll come after you each and every year.

Your gifts mean so much. They help us recognize and honor our compassionate care champions and they put dollars to work where they can have the biggest impact.

"Do not be afraid, I have called you by name: you are mine." - Isaiah 43:2-3

Ways to show gratitude

Call us, write us a letter or contribute online to our Grateful Patient program.


"Seven months ago my husband was healthy, or at least we thought he was. When you believe you're healthy you don't happen to think about what goes on in a hospital day-in and day-out. You don't realize the miracles that are made possible because of those who came before you and the caregivers who faithfully and tirelessly show up every day. I am absolutely humbled and privileged by my experience. And I am grateful to take my turn in being able to contribute to others."

- June, 54, Grateful Patient
