Gifts of Gratitude: Saying Thanks to Our Caring Professionals

The Grateful Patient Program at The Miriam Hospital provides an opportunity for you to say thank you in a special and meaningful way to the caregivers (doctors, nurses, hospital staff) who made a difference to you or your family during your time at The Miriam.

It may have been a lifesaving procedure or something as simple as a kind word or a smile that brought you or your family member comfort and you would like to show your thanks. Gifts from grateful patients support current programs and services, as well as invest in the future of medicine, research, and medical education.
