Thank Your Doctor, Nurse, Caregiver or Medical Staff

Colored box mosiac with people's faces promoting Honour. Give. Transform.

Making a tribute gift is the perfect way to thank a Hamilton Health Sciences staff member who went above and beyond for you or someone you love.

Honour any member of the hospital staff team and they will be informed of your gift and receive a special commemorative lapel pin. If you would like to include a personal message, we will see that they receive it with their pin.

Whom Should I Honour with My Gift?

You can choose to honour any staff member who made a difference in your care – a doctor, a nurse, therapist or any other Hamilton Health Sciences staff. You can also honour a specific health care team.

How Many Staff Members can I Recognize and Send a Pin to?

Please recognize as many staff as you like. However, each donation and thank you message must be made separately in order for each staff member to receive their lapel pin.

To make your donation, please fill out the form below or call 905-522-3863 or email donations@hamiltonhealth.ca.

These outstanding staff members went above and beyond at Hamilton Health Sciences.
