Washington Health System donors are recognized in the following ways:

The 1897 Society

The 1897 Society members are recognized on the Donor Recognition Plaque within Washington Hospital, as well as in the Washington Health System Donor Listings. Members are also invited to exclusive events through the year.

Annual Giving

Washington Health System Donor Listings recognize annual gifts of $100 or more.

The Orchard Society members, who make annual gifts of $250 or more, are recognized on the Donor Recognition Plaque within Washington Hospital.

Commemorative Giving

Commemorative Gifts of all sizes to Washington Health System or Hospice Care are made in honor of someone on a special occasion or as a memorial to someone who has passed away. Acknowledgments are sent to the family or loved one as appropriate.  Hospice Care memorial donors are listed online quarterly.

The Tree of Life is a beautiful bronze tree located in Washington Hospital’s main lobby. It is a special way to commemorate a loved one and support Washington Health System. Each leaf or stone bears the name(s) of the honoree as specified by the donor.

The Legacy Library, a commemorative giving recognition piece for donations to Hospice Care, is a painted mural of books with plaques, made to look like the book spines, bearing the names of individuals touched by Hospice Care.  The library is located on the first floor of Donnell House.

The Commemorative Garden, located in front of Donnell House, is paved with bricks inscribed with the names of donors and loved ones who have received Hospice Care services.

Major Gifts

Donor Plaques are located throughout Washington Hospital as naming opportunities for the donors of major gifts (e.g., an operating suite, patient unit, waiting area, patient room, etc.)
