Champions of Care
Give back by honoring excellence.
At Prowers Medical Center, it is our mission to make a positive impact in the lives of our patients. Our providers and staff go above and beyond to ensure you always receive the highest quality of care when you trust us for your healthcare needs.
If you or a loved one recently experienced great care from our team, we now offer a way for you to give back and express your thanks through the Prowers Medical Center Foundation.
About Champions of Care
The Champions of Care program offers patients and their loved ones the opportunity to support our hospital while paying tribute to someone who enhanced the patient’s experience and truly made a difference in their life while receiving medical care.
Perhaps it was an outstanding physician or nurse, a supportive therapist, a caring receptionist or volunteer, or an entire department. Whoever it was that made an impact can be honored through a charitable gift.
When you honor your Champion of Care with a gift to the Foundation, they receive a card with your special message and a custom-crafted pin to wear proudly everyday while continuing the work that benefits those in our community. The amount of your gift will not be shared with the honoree(s).
In addition, your donation goes toward other Foundation efforts, such as equipment upgrades and necessary technologic advancements for our expert medical teams.
A Care Champion gift is just one way to say thank you to those at Prowers Medical Center who work tirelessly to provide the best care to our patients and their families.
Help us celebrate our team’s incredible care by honoring a Care Champion today.

Testimonials from Care Champions
There are many reasons patients have chosen to support our hospital through a Champions of Care gift. Below are just a few:
“Thanks for taking such good care of my mom. Your bedside manner should be a role model for all! You are the best!”
– Grateful Patient honoring Venita Anderson, Recovery Room
“Thanks to all of you for making my first stay in a hospital environment as enjoyable as it could be under the circumstances. I could not have wished for a better team to take care of me.”
– Grateful Patient honoring Miranda Miller and Chris O’Barr, Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit
“Thanks for your help with my father. You were upbeat, professional — literally a joy to work with.”
– Grateful Patient honoring Joy Kello, Case Management
“Our son hadn’t been feeling well and started having really bad stomach pain. It wasn’t normal and we knew immediately that something wasn’t right. We called our provider and were advised to take him directly to the Emergency Department. The man who admitted us was so funny, it calmed our nerves. Our nurse was so sweet and thorough, and she made us feel so comfortable. Our ultrasound tech was really friendly and explained everything we were seeing as she did her job. Our physician was knowledgeable and kind and made sure we had all the info we needed. Even the front reception staff were kind and courteous when we first arrived. Every person that touched our lives during those few hours was wonderful. Thankfully, our son was fine, and we got to go home after a few hours and a handful of tests. Our visit could have taken a different turn, but either way, we knew we were in excellent hands. We want to honor the amazing work the Emergency Department did for us and for every patient they care for each day.”
