Eisenhower Launches Patient Greeting Card Program

Sending words of encouragement to a loved one in the hospital is now just a click away! Spearheaded by Eisenhower Medical Center’s Foundation department, the Send a Smile program is a simple way to put a smile on a patient’s face.

        The process is easy and completely free. Patients’ families and friends can simply log on to emc.org and click the Send a Smile logo, or go directly to emc.org/smile. They can choose from a selection of eight images, type a message and click “Submit.” The Foundation department will retrieve and print the selected card and message, then hand-deliver it directly to the patient.

        No matter how near or far, loved ones can send a smile to the bedside of a friend or family member who is currently hospitalized.
