A Grateful Patient Program

Make a Gift to Honor a Caregiver

The doctor who calms your fears when you rush to the Emergency Department. The therapist who gets you back on your feet. The nurse who holds your hand as you give birth to your first child. Every staff member at Loma Linda University Health shares the same goal — to make you and your loved ones whole again.

When we’re in the hospital, we’re at our most vulnerable. Our caregivers — whether a doctor, nurse, therapist or chaplain — care for us emotionally and spiritually as well as physically. At Loma Linda University Health, that speaks to our mission to treat the whole person.

Healing Hands

The premier medical organization in the region, Loma Linda University Health depends on the support of former patients and their families who received the best, most compassionate care possible. We also know that patients sometimes bond with their caregivers. That’s why we created Healing Hands, a grateful patient program where you can make a gift to Loma Linda University Health and honor a physician or staff member who helped make your stay easier.

“I am very grateful and appreciative of the excellent care I received from the entire team on units 3100 and 3200, and in particular Alice, Phyllis and Eva. They were amazing. My husband and I are so thrilled that because of their diligence, care, and attention, we now have our happy and healthy baby boy.”
Heather, Total Care Birth Center patient
“Jessica made a point to tell me how things were going, that she treated patients 'like she would want someone to treat her own mom,' and even stopped to visit my mom on shifts when she was not assigned to her room while on breaks.”
Barbara, daughter of specialty surgical patient
“Whether I was meeting him for each procedure or for follow-up appointments, Dr. Boctor always showed genuine concern for my well-being. He also was very humble and kind with each interaction. ”
Carrie, pain management patient
“The care I experienced from everyone at LLUH was incredible. Even in their attention to the little details… I can't even describe how great of an experience I had.”
Doris, emergency department patient
“My nurse Marcia was professional and had a great personality. When she walked in the room, she made me feel better because she was always cheerful.”
