On behalf of my mother and family please know of our immense gratitude for the role that NLH caregivers gave in providing both timely attention and excellent care by everyone she encountered during her stay. We have made a contribution as appreciation and tribute to the wonderful hospital staff for all that they do to give the very best.”

We frequently hear from patients and their loved ones, like the Stohls, who tell us how members of our healthcare team went above and beyond to make them feel comfortable and nurtured through excellent, compassionate care. They want to know, “How we can ever say thank you enough?”

New London Hospital (NLH) is excited to announce a new, formalized grateful patient program, the Circle of Gratitude, to help patients and loved ones express their gratitude and emotional connection after care. The Circle of Gratitude is a philanthropic program that ties a financial donation to the care of a particular person and honors their care team.  These grateful donations are then used to enhance patient care, completing the circle.
“This incredible program provides an opportunity for those who want to say thank you to one of our staff members with something more than

words. We believe the expression of gratitude spreads and ripples outward like a circle, hence the term Circle of Gratitude,” says Kathleen Kennedy, Director of Community  Relations and Development.
Each caregiver who is honored receives a pin through a special ceremony and wears it proudly as a reminder of your thoughtful gift. Your gift also helps us meet the needs of our community by expanding our programs, advancing technology, investing in clinical talent, and supporting our commitment to compassionate patient- and family-centered care.

We invite you to recognize those who have touched your life and to support their continued impact. Maybe it was a kind word, a gentle smile or a warm blanket that brought comfort to you or a loved one. It could have been a lifesaving procedure, exceptional care during an in-patient visit or compassion received in an ambulatory setting.
By making a gift in your caregiver’s honor, you can recognize their exceptional work while helping the hospital provide that same essential compassionate care to others.
