Honor a Caregiver at UVM Medical Center

There’s no better way to acknowledge a wonderful caregiver than through our Honor a Caregiver program, which allows you to support the UVM Medical Center in the name of a special nurse, doctor, or multitude of staff who stood by you throughout your healthcare journey.

Anyone who’s visited the UVM Medical Center knows that we define “care” in the broadest possible terms – because our remarkable team understands that the comprehensive physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our patients and loved ones must be met in order to achieve true wellness.

Our Honor a Caregiver program allows you to pay tribute to a Medical Center team member who offered especially meaningful comfort and care throughout your experience. After you give a gift to the Medical Center in honor of a designated caregiver, he or she will receive a notification about the gift along with a “Healthcare Hero” pin – letting our whole community know about your caregiver’s heroic efforts.

The nursing care Addie received in her two long weeks in the neuro ICU was perhaps the most remarkable part of our year in and out of the hospital. There were many and varied kindnesses, from the constant attention, technical prowess, and precise calibration of her meds to shampoos, braiding, stories from the slopes, and good cheer on long shifts. The care Addie received was awe inspiring, and we give this donation in the nurses’honor with gratitude.
