Send eGreetings to a Patient

e-greetings sample

Send e-mail greetings to a friend or loved one currently hospitalized at UK Chandler Hospital, Markey Cancer Center or Kentucky Children's Hospital

Your message will be printed out and delivered by a UK HealthCare volunteer to the patient. Messages are delivered once a day, Monday through Friday. Any messages received on weekends will be delivered on the next business day. Around holidays, delivery may be delayed by 2-3 days.

Be sure to include the patient's first and last names and the town they're from to help ensure your greeting is delivered correctly. Please keep in mind when writing a personal message that it may be viewed by volunteers or UK HealthCare staff while being delivered.

Send eGreetings.

Sending flowers

Flowers sent to patients will be delivered to their rooms, except for patients in intensive care units.

In ICUs, flowers will be left at the nursing station because they are not allowed in the critical-care patient areas.

Flowers are delivered by volunteers Monday through Friday.

If you have any questions regarding deliveries, please contact the Volunteer Office at 859-323-6023.

To place an order, please contact the hospital gift shops at 859-323-4127 or 859-257-1559
