If you or a loved one has ever been a patient at one of our hospitals or other facilities, you may have encountered a doctor, nurse, technician or volunteer who brought you comfort and reassurance in a time of need.

Many patients express gratitude for their care through kind words, smiles and letters of thanks. Hearing the words “thank you” from a patient is more meaningful to a caregiver than any other type of award or accolade they could receive.

Blue Ridge HealthCare Foundation’s Grateful Patient Program now provides patients with another way to say thank you to a caregiver who may have made a difference in their lives.

By honoring a caregiver who went the extra mile for you or a loved one, you will be making a tangible and meaningful impact on our ability to care for patients 24-hours a day, 365 days per year.

Gifts received through the grateful patient program pay tribute to a caregiver who has enriched your life, while also helping to provide essential resources for a healthier tomorrow for you, for your family and for our community.

When a gift is made, the person whom you are honoring will be sent an acknowledgement letter. Your message of appreciation will also be shared with your honoree’s supervisor, his or her professional colleagues and with the community through our Foundation newsletter. The gift amount will be kept confidential.
