Healing Hands

Honor YOUR CAREGIVER through Philanthropic Giving!

Were you touched by the care you or a loved one received at Southeast Alabama Medical Center? Did you have a caregiver who went the extra mile to make sure your needs were met?

If so, please consider making a donation to the SAMC Foundation in recognition of the excellent care you have received. Our Healing Hands program is designed to help you make a difference in the lives of others by supporting vital hospital programs and services here at the Medical Center. Your generous gift allows our nurses, physicians and all those who touch the lives of our patients and their families to deliver hope and help when it’s needed most. 

When you make a donation in honor of a caregiver, we present the recipient with a Healing Hands recognition pin as a lasting reminder of their caring spirit and your tribute gift.
