Circle of Friends

Maybe it was a kind word from a nurse, a helping hand from a transportation aide or a lifesaving procedure performed by a surgeon. 

Circle of Friends provides an opportunity for grateful patients and their family and friends to say thank you by making a gift in honor of the physician, nurse or staff member who made a difference in their care.

The caregiver you honor will be sent a letter of gratitude and a custom-crafted Circle of Friends pin to wear proudly. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed.
