Grateful Patient and Family Program

At Akron Children’s, leading-edge care and compassion go hand-in hand. Our patients often express their gratitude for the excellent care they receive in a variety of ways - through their kind words, smiles, letters of thanks and financial support.

The Grateful Patient and Family Program provides our patient families an opportunity to say “thank you” in a special way to the doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals who made a difference to you or a loved one. The doctor, nurse or medical professional who is being honored by your gift will be notified of your thoughtfulness. Say thank you for the care you or your loved one received.
