HONOR A DOCTOR - National Doctors’ Day is March 30, 2014
On Doctors’ Day physicians at St. Mary’s are honored through tribute gifts to St. Mary’s Foundation. If you would like to join us by saying Thank You to a doctor who has made a difference in your life, please use the DONATE NOW button above and be sure to select Gift Designation “OTHER” and include DOCTORS DAY and your PHYSICIAN name(s) in the detail area below.
You can also print a Doctors’ Day tribute gift form HERE. A special note of appreciation will inform the doctor of your tribute, and if we receive your tribute gift by March 20, your doctor’s name and your name will be prominently listed on the 2014 Doctors’ Day sign in the lobby of St. Mary’s Hospital.
The Role of Philanthropy
St. Mary’s has a powerful history rooted in philanthropy. From the very beginning our founding sisters used baskets to gather funds to share with those in need. Continuing the tradition, St. Mary’s Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that provides funding to St. Mary’s Hospital and Care Center by partnering with grateful donors, patients and families to support our healing mission. During this time of unparalleled change in the health care industry, philanthropic dollars will play an increasingly important role in St. Mary’s mission of providing exceptional patient care.
Memorial & Tribute Gifts
All gifts to St. Mary’s can be made ‘In Memory’ or ‘In Honor’ of someone special. For a personalized gift, consider an engraved brick or tile placed in The Gardens of St. Mary's, or contact the Foundation office to discuss naming opportunities within the hospital. To thank a doctor, nurse, or other caregiver, a Guardian Angel gift would be most appropriate. If you have recently lost a loved one, and would like to direct memorials to St. Mary’s, visit the Ways to Give page for common obituary notice wording.
Through the generous support of our donors, St. Mary’s Foundation was able to make distributions and commitments of $2,382,603 in 2012 for resources and equipment to improve the patient experience and support the staff in their work of providing exceptional care.
