Grateful Patient Program

Our Grateful Patient and Family Program offers an outlet for you to say "thank you" for the kind words, listening ears and healing hands that have touched your life. Words of recognition to a caregiver, sharing your story of healing with others or making a generous gift are a few of the ways you can give back and continue the cycle of compassionate care.

Many patients and families who have chosen the University of Missouri Health Care expressed interest in becoming partners in our mission to provide the highest quality of care to Missourians.  Some are now making a difference by supporting programs in patient care, education or research that hold a special significance for them or their families. These individuals have developed a deep interest in helping to advance medicine-often because of their own experiences-and are doing so by supporting our collective efforts to improve the health of all Missourians.
