ELMHURST –  The Elmhurst Memorial Hospital (EMH) Foundation is pleased to announce a new way for patients and their family members to recognize caregivers at EMH who have made a difference in their lives.

Through the new Caregiver Recognition Program, patients and their families have the opportunity to convey their gratitude for a caregiver with a donation. The caregiver will be notified that a gift has been made in their honor and will receive internal recognition as well as a sycamore leaf pin to wear proudly.

“Our patients and their families often ask about ways they can acknowledge acts of professionalism and kindness from our physicians, nurses, other staff members and volunteers,” said Sandra Nelson, President of the EMH Foundation. “A thank you can mean so much, and this new Caregiver Recognition Program offers an ideal opportunity to formally acknowledge a caregiver who has made a difference in your life.”  

To recognize a caregiver, please visit the EMH Foundation's website or call (331) 221-4483.
