Providence Hospitals donors honor caregivers

Providence Hospitals began its “Guardian Angel” program in 2013 to give grateful patients and their loved ones the opportunity to support the hospital through donations while paying tribute to caregivers who made a difference during the patients’ stay or visit. Since the program began, dozens of Providence caregivers have been honored as guardian angels.

Caregivers named as guardian angels receive a card informing them of the gift from one of their patients and a custom-crafted lapel pin to wear. The donations made in their honor support projects and programs at Providence Hospitals.

One patient nominated nine employees for the program. In doing so, he stated that he and his wife “took great pleasure in nominating employees and associates of Providence Hospitals as guardian angels.” He went on to state: “I had a heart valve replacement earlier this year and two discs repaired two weeks later. These people were truly angels and it is so obvious that they heal from the heart. How fortunate you are and how proud you must be to have them on staff!”

He went on to say his and his wife’s donation to Providence was “a small token of thanks for such a large, powerful impact these angels had on our lives.”
