Circle of Positivity

A Grateful Patient and Family Program


A Way To Say "Thank You"

The Circle of Positivity provides an opportunity for patients and their families to give back and say "thank you" for exceptional care. Showing appreciation is not just about a financial contribution. You can give the gift of sharing your story which inspires staff, care teams, and the community. You can give the gift of honoring your caregiver by nominating them for a DAISY Award. If you do decide to make a gift, all contributions to Bronson Health Foundation remain local and will be used for Bronson's Greatest Needs or a program of your choice. Learn more about our impact.

Gifts to the Circle of Positivity program help us care for patients within all of southwest Michigan. Your gift may support patient care in areas of greatest need or in a department or service of special meaning - it is up to you!

Gifts can also be made in honor or memory of a loved one, or in honor of a Bronson Healthcare team member.

A gift to the Circle of Positivity helps to support:

  • Patient care for those most in need
  • New equipment and technology
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Bronson Children's Hospital
  • Ongoing education or scholarships for our professional caregivers

Recognize A Caregiver

The DAISY Award is supported by the not-for-profit DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Foundation. Bonnie and J. Mark Barnes created this foundation and award as a way to remember their son, J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick had a disease that attacked his body, and he was in the hospital for a long time. His nurses did such a great job with him that the Barnes family created an award that continues to recognize the excellent work nurses do every day.

At Bronson, our mission is simple – together, we provide excellent healthcare. And we love hearing the stories about how our staff has gone above-and-beyond to provide you the best care possible.

We encourage you to nominate either your nurse, or an entire care team for the DAISY Award.

Honor Your Caregiver
