Grateful Patient Giving

Maybe it was a kind word or an extra blanket that brought you comfort. It could have been a life-saving procedure or a visit from a volunteer during your hospital stay.

The Grateful Patient Program is a thoughtful way to recognize the excellent care you or your loved one received at Bayhealth.

Patients or their families can donate as a way of saying thank you to their doctor, nurse, therapist or any member of the health care team who made a memorable contribution to the patient's health and well-being.

Upon receipt of your special gift, a card will be given to the health care professional that you wish to honor. You will receive an official receipt for tax purposes, along with our thanks!

As partners in caring your gift to the Bayhealth Foundation helps to perform medical miracles every day. From purchasing state-of-the-art equipment to providing continuing education for nursing and medical staff, your contribution helps to enhance the outstanding level of care our community has come to expect.

Gifts from grateful patients and families will:
Advance and support health care delivery and patient care

  • Benefit current programs and services at Bayhealth
  • Support innovative clinical education programs
  • Assist with the cost of patient care services not covered by medical insurance
  • Underwrite the cost of new equipment and technology


When you contribute financially to the Bayhealth Foundation, you show your appreciation in a way that will help others receive outstanding care. The effects of your kindness are profound and far-reaching. Your gift helps us to change lives.
