Grateful Patient Program
A meaningful way to say thank you to those who care for you and your family.
You may see red “Heart Hero” pins proudly worn on lapels and name badges throughout the Oklahoma Heart Hospital. These pins are not simply handed out to all team members – they are earned by being recognized for providing compassionate, healing care. And behind each pin is a personal story, a story worth sharing.
Who is a Heart Hero? Those that experience OHH often come away with a level of gratitude that is unwavering. We often hear patients say, “I wish there was a way for me to say thank you!” Our Grateful Patient Program gives patients and families a meaningful way to show their appreciation by donating in honor of anyone they consider to be their Heart Hero.
From the physicians, nurses, the A La Heart Café staff, surgical teams, and our support staff – you can say “Thank You” to any member of the OHH team that made a difference in your life. Families and friends can also participate by honoring their loved ones that are courageously battling heart disease.
When you recognize your Heart Hero(es), those honored will be:
- Informed of your kindness (without stating the size of the gift)
- Presented with a special card symbolizing your appreciation
- Honored with a “Heart Hero” pin to wear proudly
Heartwarming. That’s how we describe every experience when we present a Heart Hero with a symbolic pin and share kind words of gratitude, especially over the last few years. Hearing that our patients are grateful for all we do has truly been a bright light during a very dark time. And although our Heart Heroes would do anything for our patients without expecting something in return, it brings smiles to their faces and means so much to know that they are appreciated.
