Gratitude Matters

At MedStar Health Research Institute, we understand that gratitude is an important part of the patient experience. Studies show that expressing gratitude can lead to better mental health, improved healing, more restful sleep and overall positive emotions.

When patients and loved ones receive an excellent experience from their care team, their gratitude can become the transformative assistance needed for research, innovation, education, and care services for future patients.

Our philanthropy team works with those who wish to express their gratitude by becoming involved to assure future success in advancing health through research. We are honored to partner with you to help find the best way to express your gratitude—whether that be through honoring a caregiver, sharing your story or making a philanthropic investment. MedStar Health is a mission-driven, non-profit organization committed to advancing health. Join with us to make a difference!
