Hidden Halo – Grateful Patient & Family Program

At Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital, leading-edge care and compassion go hand in hand. Our patients often express their gratitude for this excellent care in a variety of ways – through their kind words, smiles, letters of thanks and financial contributions. It’s certainly a rewarding feeling for our highly-trained healthcare professionals to know they were there when patients and families needed them the most.

Perhaps it was a kind word or a smile that brought you or your family member comfort. It could have been a life-saving procedure or a visit from a volunteer during your hospital stay.  We thank you for choosing Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital for your care and invite you to send a heartfelt message to anyone who made your stay pleasant. With the Grateful Patient and Family Program patients and families have the opportunity to recognize a specific person or a department with a written note. Share your story with us today. If you would like to make a tribute gift, you do so on our donate page

"Thank you for your encouragement, words of wisdom, and patience with me during this hard time. I thought I was just going to give up, but you guys believing in me gave me faith and reminded me of my capabilities. Thank you so much!"
