Grateful Patient and Family Program

Medical and Nursing Excellence
Medical and Nursing ExcellenceHas University Hospitals Portage Medical Center made a difference in your life? Has a physician or a nurse been there for you and your family during a difficult time? Has a member of the UH Portage Medical Center family shared a kind word, a warm smile and an understanding heart when you have needed it most? During the birth of a child, did those in our Birth Center impact your life during memorable moments? Did Hospice touch the lives of your family?

Many of our patients and family members are thankful for UH Portage Medical Center. We are often asked by our patients, "How can I say thank you to those people who made a difference in my life?" Our grateful patient program is a special way to recognize and commemorate the excellent care that you or your loved one has received.

Patients and family members express their gratitude to us in a variety of ways. Some send cards, notes, pictures or photos; many tell their neighbors, family and friends of the excellent care they have received.

I am thankful for the excellence of UH Portage Medical Center:

  • Knowledgeable and caring physicians
  • Kind and compassionate nurses
  • State-of-the-art medical equipment
  • Staff members' patience and smiles
  • Assistance by volunteers
  • A clean and beautiful hospital campus
  • A nationally recognized hospital close to home

Sharing your appreciation is rewarding for everyone involved.
