Grateful Patients

Feeling grateful is wonderful, but the real joy comes from expressing that gratitude.

It may have been a skilled cardiologist who repaired your heart, or the compassionate smile of a nurse during chemotherapy. Perhaps it was the hug that eased your child’s fears or a visit from a volunteer who treated you more like an old friend than a hospital patient.

Simple gestures of kindness often mean the most to us.

We’re often asked by patients how they can express their gratitude and appreciation for the care they received at NGMC.

The Grateful Patient Program was established to allow individuals and their friends and families to formally recognize a special doctor or nurse, an entire department or a clinical program that played a special role in their care.

“I was clinically dead after my cardiac arrest. I can’t thank everyone enough for having a system in place that saved my life. Now I have a beautiful son that otherwise would not be here. I am beyond grateful.”

Dustin, Cardiac Patient
