Kent Healthcare Heroes

Healthcare Heroes Program

The Kent Hospital Healthcare Heroes Program helps patients and families honor a caregiver who has made a difference in your care and treatment. Maybe it was a supportive hand, or a life-changing medical procedure, or just a gentle smile. We hope your experience at Kent was defined by moments like those.

People often tell us that words alone cannot express their gratitude for the work we have done to help them or their family members. The Healthcare Heroes program is a way to recognize that work and the special human moments that we strive to provide every person who walks through our doors.

My whole experience was positive and kind. They cared for my whole family. It was a human experience. The kind you find in a high-quality, local acute care hospital.

The doctors were all so professional and compassionate without talking over my head. They used easy to understand language and I felt safe.

The Labor & Delivery staff were amazing. I would highly recommend Kent to others for fabulous care.

My family and I  have been to Kent whenever our medical needs required. The doctors, nurses, and staff without exception have been knowledgeable, courteous, professional, and friendly. It's an outstanding hospital.

The entire Kent Hospital staff was excellent, and professional, and provided great care and concern for my health before, during, and after surgery. Thanks to everyone!
