Circle of Care

Ways to Give

Honoring those who make a difference.

The Circle of Care program is a simple way for grateful patients, families, and friends to acknowledge an exceptional caregiver who went above and beyond to make their experience at Stanford Health Care – ValleyCare a little easier. Whether you choose to honor an outstanding physician or nurse, an attentive dietitian or physical therapist, a cheerful housekeeper, or perhaps a caring volunteer, your donation is a meaningful way to say "Thank you" and help future patients and families at the same time.

When you donate, you may also include a note of thanks. We will share your note with the honoree and recognize them with a special Circle of Care pin that they can wear to commemorate your generosity and their compassion.

Dr. Charlene Hu on why she loves being a neurologist:
"I love my job as a neurologist and always do my best to help my patients, every single one of them. The most rewarding part of my job is to see my patients smiling and recovering. Thank you to all my patients and colleagues for trusting in me!"
