Circle of Gratitude: Compassion, Healing, Generosity

We are excited to announce our new Circle of Gratitude program. This program helps patients and their loved ones express gratitude for their care. The Circle of Gratitude program matches a financial donation to the care of a particular person in honor of their care team. We then use these donations to enhance patient care, completing the circle.

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.

The Stohls, grateful family members

We often hear from patients and their loved ones, like the Stohls, who tell us how members of our health care 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?"

"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 honored caregiver receives a pin at a special ceremony. They will wear it proudly as a reminder of your thoughtful gift. Your gift also helps us meet the needs of our community. With your gift, we can expand our programs, advance our technology, and invest in clinical talent. Your gift helps support 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 might have been a lifesaving procedure. Or it could have been exceptional care during an in-patient visit or compassion received in an ambulatory setting.

By making a gift in your caregiver's honor, you recognize their exceptional work while helping the hospital provide that same essential compassionate care to others.
