Thank a Caregiver
The Grateful Patient Program provides patients and their families with an opportunity to show gratitude to those who played a special role in the care they received while at Grace Hospital.
Gifts received through this program will not only recognize the special caregiver, but also help to support patient-related enhancements such as equipment, research and special programs that would not otherwise be funded by the government.
Whether you choose to recognize a doctor or nurse, an entire department, or a program that impacted your health, your donation is a meaningful opportunity to say thank you. Click here to view the print brochure.
Upon receipt of your gift, a card and lapel pin will be given to the caregiver you wish to honour.
“I have had such good experiences with Grace Hospital, both when my mom was a patient there in 2006 (she passed on to heaven), and for myself when I was correctly diagnosed with ovarian cancer through careful tests at The Grace. The kindness and care I received was wonderful.”

Why is Grace Hospital Foundation launching a Grateful Patient Program now?

Are Grateful Patient Program donations designated or undesignated?
While a grateful patient can choose to designate their donation to a specific program area or initiative, Grace Hospital Foundation does encourage donors to consider making an undesignated donation so that funds can be directed to the area of greatest need.
