Guardian Angel Program

The Ketchikan General Hospital Foundation Guardian Angel program recognizes the great work of our caregivers.

When caregivers provide extraordinary support and compassionate care during a visit or stay, many patients and family members want to express their gratitude. And it’s appreciated. As one caregiver noted, “Providing compassionate support is part of being a caregiver. That’s what we do. Learning that we’ve made a real difference to a patient is the greatest reward we could receive.” 

Now, patients and family members can initiate recognition of their special caregiver as a Guardian Angel. With a donation of any size, you can acknowledge the efforts of the caregiver who made a difference during your hospital stay. As a non-profit hospital, PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center relies on your donations to sustain these programs. 

Any caregiver who makes a difference can be an Angel. Each caregiver who is recognized by patients or family members will be honored as a Guardian Angel during a special presentation among peers and will receive a Guardian Angel pin, a Guardian Angel certificate, and recognition in various publications.
