Grateful Family Program

Share Your Gratitude With A Golden Heart Award

Every day, incredible and compassionate care is provided to patients and families throughout our region.

The Grateful Family Program is an impactful way you and your family can express gratitude for the care you received at your hospital. Your donation can honour, thank and recognize a staff member, physician, or volunteer, with a Golden Heart Award.

Those honoured with your donation are recognized among their peers and are celebrated on the hospital’s blog and social media. They also receive a golden heart badge to wear with pride.

To learn more about the Grateful Family Program or to recognize someone who had an impact on your experience at NBRHC, please contact us at 705-495-8125 or [email protected].

You can also honour someone by donating online. Please include as much detail as possible in the comments section so we can honour your care team appropriately.

Vickers – Outpatient Lab

“For more than 14 years, I have been a “frequent flyer” of the Blood Lab. Three kinds of blood cancer and a stem cell transplant often require a lot of blood work, to say the least. “

Ian McAskile

“During that time, I continually remember thinking –“Wow, these people are great”- and I know I was not the most ideal patient to deal with on many days.”

Emma & Luke McQuarrie

“Luke, Rosie and I are externally grateful for their care and we will forever cherish having gone through this life changing experience with them.”
