Waves of Gratitude

Make a gift to honor a caregiver 

“Thanks to Dr. Carmack, EMMC’s Trauma Team and you, I am not a motorcycle accident. I am the father of the groom.” 

~ Jeff Fitch, grateful patient

Reason to be Grateful: After a month in intensive care, he was able to attend his son’s wedding two days after discharge from EMMC. Many of our patients and families express deep gratitude for the care they, or a loved one, received at Eastern Maine Medical Center. Through EMMC’s Waves of Gratitude program, you can say “thank you” to the caregivers who showed unwavering commitment to exceptional care. Your gift will honor any EMMC employee, physician, or caregiver and help to ensure accessibility to high quality, life-saving and life-changing care at EMMC.

When a gift through our Waves of Gratitude program is made to the hospital in honor of an employee, that employee will be presented with an EMMC Wave Award pin and certificate. We will also recognize those employees through EMMC web pages, newsletters, and other publications.

“A gift from a grateful patient is so meaningful to us as healthcare providers. Not only does the gift recognize the care we have given to that particular patient, it also supports the care we can give to other patients in the future.” 

~ David Carmack, MD, EMMC physician
