Memorials & Honorariums
Contributions made in memory, or in honor, of a loved one are opportunities for patients, families, and friends to pay tribute to a special person and help others in need at the same time. These gifts are an excellent way to honor hospital staff and physicians who have provided you outstanding service. Other events that may call for special recognition include the birth of a baby, birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations. A contribution to Parkwest in honor of the special person is a wonderful way to show your care for them.
Families may request that friends make a contribution to the hospital in lieu of flowers at the time of a loved one’s death. This information can be added to the obituary notice in local papers, and is a truly meaningful way to memorialize a loved one and ensure the future of high quality health care in East Tennessee.
Some individuals may wish to provide substantial gifts to support the hospital and its important service in our community. There are many ways to make such gifts. One of the most common is a bequest – include Parkwest Medical Center in your will. Other ideas include charitable trusts, gift annuities, pooled income fund, donations of real property and many other options.
The staff of Fort Sanders Foundation is available to provide more information on these and other gift options. Please contact us at (865)531-5210 with any questions or for additional information on how your contributions can help Parkwest.
