Honor your Healthcare Hero

Is there a wonderful UCI Health nurse, doctor, care team member or volunteer you’d like to thank?

Our Healthcare Hero program gives grateful patients and their loved ones the opportunity to support UCI Health while paying tribute to caregivers who made a difference during the patient's visit or stay. 

You may also pay tribute to loved ones who have passed, your Healthcare Hero or a colleague reaching a milestone in their career by dedicating a bench or brick in their name in the medical center’s Healing Garden.

Each Healthcare Hero honoree will receive a tribute card with your thoughtful message and a custom-crafted lapel pin to wear proudly.

Your gift will not only offer encouragement to your caregiver, it also will help UCI Health provide the finest community healthcare, grounded in the best medical and scientific knowledge.

There’s a hero for everyone. Pay tribute to your Healthcare Hero today ›

Remember to tell us about your hero in the section, “My gift is in memory or honor of someone.” That way, you can be sure your message is delivered.

Words of Gratitude

Grateful patient Lori Francisconi with UCI Health surgeon Dr. Ramy Yaacoub

"It was reassuring to know that one hospital had the ability to meet all of my needs, and I am deeply grateful that Dr. Jakowatz and Dr. Yaacoub helped us get through a difficult time. Because of their support, I get to be here to watch my son grow up."
