We’re often asked by patients who have a positive experience at our facilities if there’s a way they can express their gratitude and appreciation for the care they or a family member received. The Sentara Health Foundation offers the Seeds of Gratitude program as a way for you to do just that.
The Seeds of Gratitude program was initiated to honor that special person who helped you during your stay or visit to one of our facilities. Our "healthcare heroes” have a passion for their patients and come to work every day with a mission in mind: to provide you with the best possible care and comfort during your time of need.
If you are especially thankful to a certain Sentara caregiver, you may choose to plant a Seed of Gratitude gift in his or her honor. For the nurse who eased your concern during chemotherapy or gave a hug that eased your child’s fears. Maybe it was the heart-surgeon who saved your life, or the volunteer who treated you more like an old friend rather than a patient. Our Sentara partners try to make a difference in our patients’ lives every day.
Your contribution might help those in need by providing:
Emergency funds to pay for a safe place to recover for those who have none when they leave the hospital.
Medications like those to help cancer patients with nausea that are typically not covered by insurance.
Special pressure garments that burn victims use to reduce body disfigurement and infection.
Transportation home for those who have no one to pick them up from the hospital.
Your tax-deductible donation can make a huge difference in continuing our mission. Thank you for your generosity and for recognizing the Sentara caregiver who touched your heart. At Sentara, we are committed to providing you, and all of our patients, with the most exceptional care possible.
