For Immediate Release August 4, 2008
Delivering a child prematurely can be a very scary time for any parent. Luckily, Stacey Johnson from Pass Christian had a nurse who she says went above and beyond to make her delivery less worrisome. She felt she needed some way to recognize this special nurse.
It is usually through personal gestures such as cards or candy that Memorial Hospital patients thank those who have helped them. But now, the Memorial Hospital Foundation has introduced a Guardian Angel program that lets patients recognize hospital staff by making a donation in their name. The staff member is then presented with a guardian angel lapel pin in front of their peers and co-workers.
There is no minimum donation to recognize a staff member. We want every patient to feel welcome to participate in this program
