Grateful Giving

According to research, gratitude leads to happiness and encourages healing. So it’s not surprising that many of our patients want to express gratitude as a part of their Carle experience. When you share gratitude for the care you or a loved one has received, it reminds our hardworking caregivers that their efforts on behalf of patients and their families are appreciated and make a difference. And every gift of gratitude truly has an impact – as a not-for-profit healthcare system, Carle Health relies on philanthropy to enhance our care and services, and to make sure every patient, now and in the future, gets the world-class care they deserve. Giving back is gratitude in action.
