Everyday Heroes

Has an Oakwood doctor, employee or volunteer made a difference in your experience with us?
Help us recognize your Everyday Hero.

Oakwood’s Everyday Hero program enables you to pay tribute to someone who made a positive impact on your life, just by doing his or her job. Your Everyday Hero might be:

  • The talented surgeon whose skill and calming manner put you at ease
  • The extraordinary nurse whose warm disposition brought you cheer and comfort
  • The conscientious housekeeper who kept your room clean and your spirits up
  • The friendly receptionist who checked you in
  • The considerate nurse’s aide who wheeled you out at the end of your stay
  • Or anyone else who provided you memorable compassionate care


Through our Everyday Hero program, we’ll celebrate the caregivers you designate with a personalized card, lapel pin, and other recognition – and your support will help needy patient and community benefit programs right here in our neighborhood.

For more information, contact the Oakwood Healthcare Foundation at 313.586.5234.
