A meaningful way to say thanks

Many times, patients ask us about ways to thank the doctors, nurses and others who cared for them during their stay at Medical University Hospital. By making a gift to the Giving Back Program, you can thank your caregivers in a meaningful way while helping them change what’s possible in health care for their patients.

Why your gifts are important

Gifts made to the Giving Back Program help pay for:

  • Hospital upgrades
  • New equipment
  • New and expanded patient care programs
  • Patient education materials
  • Continuing education for caregivers

In short, your gifts help us build and maintain the most professional and comfortable patient-care environment possible.
