Expressing gratitude is good for your well-being. Gratitude may also be linked to resilience, which is having an "inner strength" that helps you bounce back after stressful situations. For patients and their family members, gratitude often helps to complete the cycle of illness, disease and injury— it's part of the healing process. Recognizing the important role gratitude plays in our patients' healing, our Grateful Heart Program supports the many ways patients and family members choose to say thank you and express their gratitude.
