Honor your Healthcare Hero

Is there a wonderful UC Irvine 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 UC Irvine Health while paying tribute to caregivers who made a difference during the patient's visit or stay.

Each honored Healthcare Hero 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 but it will also help UC Irvine 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.
