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.

A grateful patient shows gratitude for exceptional care with a gift in honor of Dr. Lorena Tan, Family Medicine practitioner: "Thanks for being a dedicated and compassionate doctor to us and all your patients.”

Dr. Lorena Tan and Shaké Sulikyan,
VCCF Executive Director

Dr. Tan on the three words that best describe her approach to medicine:
"Listen, care, knowledge. I think a great doctor must have all three of these qualities. What good is a doctor if they care and listen but don't know what to do? Or if they are caring and knowledgeable but don't listen? I strive to do all three."
