Grateful Patient Program

Perhaps a kind word or a prayer brought comfort to you. From as critical as a life-saving procedure to as simple as a visit from a volunteer during your hospital stay - we often hear from our patients how members of the St. Joseph healthcare team have made a positive difference.

A Way to Say "Thank You"

The Grateful Patient Program is a way to recognize those who have provided exceptional care. Whether you choose to honor a staff member or an entire department, your donation is a meaningful way to show your gratitude while supporting improvements to patient care.

Gifts to the Grateful Patient Program help us to care for thousands of patients from all reaches of northeastern Maine. Your gift may support patient care in areas of greatest need (unrestricted) or in a department or service of special meaning – it’s up to you.

Gifts can also be made in honor or memory of a loved one, or in honor of a St. Joseph Healthcare team member.

A gift to the Grateful Patient Program helps to support:

  • Patient care for those most in need
  • Scholarships and ongoing education for our professional caregivers
  • New equipment and technology
  • St. Joe's Healing Arts Program
