Healing Hands is a special tribute opportunity within the Medical Center Foundation’s Grateful Patient program. It gives patients and their families and friends a unique way to say thank you for the exemplary care they received by honoring someone who made an impression during their hospital experience.
A gift of any amount may become a Healing Hands tribute gift in honor of a doctor, nurse, other caregiver or support team member who had a special impact. Without specifying the amount, the Foundation recognizes the Healing Hands recipient with a certificate and custom designed lapel pin.
Launched in 2006, the SAMC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, is dedicated to developing a strong base of philanthropic support to help SAMC and its affiliates provide quality healthcare and promote wellness. The Foundation seeks and receives charitable gifts to enhance services, build new facilities, provide medical education and on-going training for healthcare professionals, fund cutting-edge equipment and technology, and quickly bring unique and specialized services to the region.
