People tend to think multi-million-dollar gifts are what makes up medical philanthropy. Healthnetwork Foundation knows that gifts of all sizes are important to physicians and hospitals. Many of our supporters want to make their gifts impactful, but don’t know how to accomplish this.

When we get patients and doctors together, people are motivated and inspired to give back. Having relationships with the teams who are leading medical discoveries is a privilege we share with the families who need them.

Here are some of the ways we support medical advances:


Honoring Physicians

Healthnetwork selects physicians based on feedback from grateful patients and supporters. As a Healthnetwork Service Excellence Award recipient, each physician or medical researcher receives a donation to be applied towards their research or clinical activities, and attends a dinner hosted by Healthnetwork in their honor.

To date, Healthnetwork has contributed over $1.2M in Service Excellence Awards towards the vital research of physicians in over 30 medical specialties.

Honoring Hospital Caregivers

Healthnetwork’s Exceptional Care Awards are presented annually to recognize hospital staff who share in our mission to provide exceptional care and attention to all Healthnetwork supporters.

Healthnetwork celebrates their dedication and outstanding service with a donation to support their department operations.
