Grateful Patient & Family Program


Every day we receive praise from our patients about the care they received from doctors, nurses, volunteers, and other members of our health care family.

At Southwestern Vermont Health Care, high-quality care and compassion go hand in hand. Our patients and their families often express their gratitude through their kind words, a friendly smile, or a letter of appreciation recognizing members of the SVHC staff who made a difference when they were most needed.

Many grateful patients also choose to say thank you by making a donation to SVHC.

Expressing gratitude by financial supporting SVHC ensures that future patients will receive the same quality of care that you or your loved one did.

Our patients say it best.

The Grateful Patient & Family Program provides you with the opportunity to recognize and say "thank you" to the doctors, nurses, technicians, volunteers, and other support staff who care for you or your loved one. Honorees are informed of your generosity and receive a certificate and special lapel pin. Additionally, those being honored are listed in the Circle of Gratitude on the SVHC website and in the Annual Report on Giving.

Share your story.
