Since the program's launch in 2014, over 500 Loma Linda University Health physicians, dentists, staff members, students and volunteers have been honored by patient donations through Healing Hands!
Gifts may be of any amount, directed to any area (or "area of greatest need"), and specified in honor of any LLUH team member who had a positive impact on a patient's experience.
First time honorees are given a silver lapel pin during a surprise presentation at their staff meeting, and the patient-donor comments about them are shared with the honoree in front of their peers. Subsequent recognitions are acknowledged with an email to the honoree and their supervisor(s). Those who reach 10 recognitions are presented with a gold lapel pin.
