Foundation honors Healing Hands recipients

Meghan Woodham, center, of the SAMC Foundation recently pinned Healing Hands recipients Kay FoundationHealingHands310x153 Manley, LPN (left) & Tracy Henderson, RN, both of Same Day Surgery.

Healing Hands, a special tribute opportunity within the Medical Center Foundation's Grateful Patient program, provides patients and their families and friends with a unique way to say thank you for the exemplary care they received at SAMC by honoring someone who made an impression during their hospital experience.

A gift of any amount may become a Healing Hands tribute gift in honor of a doctor, nurse, other caregiver, or support team member who had a special impact during someone's hospital experience. Without specifying the amount, the Foundation will recognize the Healing Hands recipient with a certificate and custom design lapel pin for them to proudly wear.

When a donation is made in honor of a caregiver, SAMC Foundation presents the recipient with a Healing Hands recognition pin as a lasting reminder of their caring spirit and the donor's tribute gift.
