If your friend or loved one is in the hospital, brighten up their day by using our Patient Greeting Service. Complete the form below by specifying type of greeting you wish to send and your message. One of our volunteers will hand deliver your greeting to the patient Monday through Friday; between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Any message received after hours will be delivered the next business day. If a greeting is undeliverable or received after the patient’s discharge, the message will be shredded and discarded. When you have completed your greeting, please click the button at the bottom of the page to send your message. Only one recipient per entry.

Would you like your greeting card to be delivered by one of our Caring Canines? Our therapy dogs and their handlers are available to visit patient rooms Tuesday through Friday from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m., as well as during the evening on Wednesdays from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. If the patient care area* allows and you have selected the Puppy Gram option below, one of our friendly therapy dogs will pay a special visit to your patient’s room!

Unfortunately, there is no way for us to provide you with a response from the patient to whom you send a greeting. Please keep in mind that this is the equivalent of sending a postcard; we cannot provide confidentiality.

* Therapy dogs are not allowed to visit the CCU or Mother & Baby floors.
