Grateful Patient

How your gratitude can give back

The Grateful Patient Program provides patients and their families with an opportunity to show gratitude to those who played a special role in the care they received at the Comox Valley campus of the North Island Hospital.

Gifts received through this program will not only recognize the special caregiver or care team, but also help to support the purchase of new medical equipment and patient comfort initiatives that benefit thousands of local patients and their families.

Whether you choose to recognize a special doctor, nurse, an entire department or a clinical program that has impacted your health, your donation is a meaningful opportunity to say “thank you”.
