The Grateful Patient program through the Foundation at Royal Inland Hospital gives the opportunity for patients to share their stories and to thank specific caregivers to whom they are grateful. Stories may be shared on our webpage and in other publications. So if you have been a patient in either Royal Inland Hospital or any of the local feeder hospitals and would like to share your story, feel free to click on the ‘Share Your Story’ button. If you would like to make a donation in appreciation of a specific caregiver or just as a general donation, please click on the ‘Make a Donation’ button. Thanks!
