Grateful Patients

Our Grateful Patient and Family program is an opportunity to express your gratitude and extend support to the individual staff members and departments that played a meaningful role in your care. It is also an opportunity to share your story.

Be inspired by these stories of hope and gratitude that remind us of our ultimate goal; to provide the very best in healthcare for our community.

Make your gift today in honour of a physician, therapist, nurse, or staff member who made a difference to you. Gifts may be designated to a specific program of special meaning or to support the area of greatest need as determined by the hospital. While keeping the dollar amount confidential, we are pleased to share acknowledgment cards with departments and staff. This gesture of support is always so very much appreciated.

When you contribute financially to the Grateful Patient and Family Program, you recognize and celebrate the excellence of care you or a loved received at Cambridge Memorial Hospital. In turn, your generosity helps others when they need us most and puts the very best tools into the hands of our doctors, nurses and support teams.

We would love to hear from you!
