Recognize and Thank a Caregiver

At Lima Memorial, we are honored and privileged to have an extraordinary team of health care professionals dedicated to caring for our patients, families and communities. They are there with words of encouragement, familiarity and comfort during times of uncertainty and lots of smiles, laughter and fun when life calls for celebration.

Explore the various ways below to extend special recognition and a heartfelt thanks to a caregiver who has impacted you with their Great Care.

Lima Memorial is honored to serve the healthcare needs of thousands of patients in Lima and the surrounding communities.

Giving Thanks. Giving Back.

Which Lima Memorial associate made your experience special? It may have been the skilled surgeon who repaired your hernia, the compassionate nurse who made chemotherapy a little easier, the physical therapist who worked with you to improve your range of motion, the volunteer who spoke to you like an old friend or the housekeeping associate who made sure your room was spotless. Show your appreciation for the care you received through Lima Memorial’s Grateful Patient and Family Program.

Your gift can acknowledge a provider, nurse, therapist, technician, social worker — any associate who made your experience a memorable one.

Your gift will support new technologies, programs and services that will enhance the experience of future patients and improve the health of those we serve. The person you choose to honor will receive an acknowledgment letter that includes your message of appreciation. Your gift amount will be kept confidential.
