Since the launch of the Caring Spirit program 100 physicians and staff have been recognized. The Caring Spirit program is a grateful patient program that gives patients he opportunity to recognize outstanding care through a donation to the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation in tribute of a caregiver at St. Joseph’s General Hospital.

Caring Spirit is a recognition program where grateful patients, family members and friends are able to express their gratitude in a meaningful way to the physicians and staff who cared for them.

How the Caring Spirit Program Works:

1.) On receipt of your gift, Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation will send a card to the healthcare professional(s) you wish to honour.

2.) Your honouree at the Hospital will also receive a caring spirit lapel pin and the Foundation will ensure that he or she is recognized by supervisors and co-workers.

3.) You will receive a charitable tax receipt along with our thanks!
