Honor a Caregiver

Join us and recognize a compassionate Dartmouth Health caregiver. During our annual Honor a Caregiver campaign, you can share a tribute and gift to appreciate any caregiver in our Dartmouth Health community – an attentive nurse, a thorough doctor, a kind receptionist, or a family member who is always there. The 2024 campaign runs during the month of March.

A custodian, a palliative care patient, and a grateful son. This is their story.

Normand Madore and his son James would eat lunch together every day while Normand was patient at the Jack Byrne Center for Palliative & Hospice Care at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. It was a routine of normalcy and companionship during a difficult time. But one day, James was delayed.

I was immediately and immensely touched by the honor. For a patient to stop in the busyness of a visit to the medical center (and all that it means) and take a moment to read, consider and jot a name down, not to mention my name, is heartwarming and notable.

A Pacemaker Fit for a Cyclist

Not all pacemakers can support the thousands of miles that Larry Morgan cycles. But Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center's Dr. Kevin Kwaku made sure that Morgan's could.

Knowing and seeing that our care results in improved lives of our patients is the principal reward of a career in medicine. Whenever a recipient of that care goes out of their way to express their appreciation and gratitude, it serves to renew that sense of purpose, remind us that we are, truly, making a difference.
