Guardian Angel Program 

Beyond top technology and advanced care techniques, patients describe their hospital experience in terms of the people who cared for them during their stay. Simple acts of human kindness—tracking down extra blankets, playing music at the bedside, or just listening—can be profoundly meaningful and healing.


Expressing Gratitude

Many patients and family members want to express their gratitude for the compassionate care they receive—the Guardian Angel program allows you to do just that.

Through the Guardian Angel program, with a donation of any amount, you can acknowledge the efforts of the caregiver who made a difference during your hospital stay.


Caregivers Appreciate Gratitude

Providing compassionate support to patients and their family is part of being a PeaceHealth caregiver. Learning that we’ve made a real difference means a lot. 

"I was so moved when one of my patients made a Guardian Angel contribution in my name." says one Sacred Heart caregiver, “I wear my Guardian Angel pin to work every day and even keep the thank you note that came with it on my desk."
