Recognize a Carle Employee

Say "Thanks" your way. 

It’s our priority at Carle to provide the best care and services possible. When you receive great healthcare, it’s natural to want to say ‘thank you’.Whether you give Gold Star recognition, donate, volunteer or simply share your story, your expression of gratitude enhances the world-class care we’re able to give to the community. Giving back leads to happiness. And happiness leads to healing and healthier behaviors. 

 When you express your gratitude through a donation, you help fund many of the services Carle offers today – from state-of-the-art medical equipment to patient-centered facilities to continuing education for staff. Donations can be made to the program of your choice. If the donation honors a member of your care team, we’ll let them know of your generosity, but the amount of your gift will remain confidential. Make a donation now. When you complete a Gold Star, we’ll pass along your gratitude and a special star pin. We’ll also share with their manager and peers recognizing their special effort in caring for you. If you would like to share your experience even further, be sure to mark ‘I give Carle permission to contact me to discuss the possibility of sharing my story with the public’ at the end of the below form and a member of the Carle team will contact you. To give a Gold Star to Carle employee, simply fill out the form.
