From as critical as a life-saving procedure to as simple as a kind gesture during a hospital stay, we often hear from patients like you how our providers went above and beyond in caring for your needs. The extra time they took, the helpful guidance they offered, the sincere compassion they extended – that’s The Mercy Touch® and it makes a world of difference to your patient experience and outcomes.
Grateful Patient Giving is a way to show appreciation and recognize exceptional care. Whether you choose to honor a specific staff member or an entire department, your donation is a meaningful expression of gratitude. Your gift may support patient care in areas of greatest need (unrestricted), or in a department or service line of special meaning – it’s up to you. Gifts can also be made in honor or memory of a loved one.
