Honor your caregiver

Honored Caregiver 2023The Expressions of Gratitude Program gives grateful patients and their loved ones a way to recognize a UK HealthCare caregiver while supporting UK HealthCare.

Did a nurse squeeze your hand in reassurance? Did a doctor take time to answer your questions when you were at your most vulnerable? Did a staff member make your room feel like home? Whoever made a difference for you, in whatever way, you can now recognize that outstanding caregiver with a personal thank you and a gift in their honor.

We encourage you to make a gift of any size. Your honored caregiver will receive a note about your gratitude. Honorees will receive a note about your gratitude and a lapel pin that recognizes their extraordinary work.

Your gift not only honors your caregiver, it also makes a difference at UK HealthCare. Philanthropy is vital to our mission to create a healthier Kentucky through treatment, research and education. Honor your caregiver now »

If you’d like to honor your caregiver with a note of thanks, you may do so by completing our patient story form.
