Who was VITAL
to your care today?
Thank a physician, nurse, caregiver, staff member or volunteer.
Health care teams, staff members and volunteers are #VITAL2HHS.

Every day they go above and beyond to make a real difference in patients’ lives. Show your gratitude by making a donation in their honour.
Honour any hospital staff member, or a specific health care team, and they will be informed of your gift and receive a special commemorative lapel pin. If you include a personal message, they will receive it with their pin. The value of your gift will not be shared.

You can honour as many staff or teams as you like. However, each donation and thank-you message must be made separately in order for each recipient to receive their lapel pin.

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