Online eCard service

This FREE online electronic greeting card service is provided by HSHS St. John's Hospital. Your eCard can be hand delivered to a patient at St. John's Hospital by our Samaritans or you may send your eCard directly to a personal email address. 

eCards will be delivered Monday through Friday. eCards sent after 12 p.m. will be delivered the next day. eCards submitted after 12 p.m. on Friday are not delivered until the following Monday. On holidays, eCards are delivered the following business day.

In order to protect the confidentiality of our patients, we are not authorized to confirm your message has been delivered. An email confirmation will simply indicate your request has been received. It neither confirms nor denies the individual is a patient at St. John's Hospital. eCards sent to patients who have been discharged will not be delivered and will be discarded. eCards are not confidential or secure, so please do not include information you do not wish to be viewed by others.

Please Note

  • Patients may have requested a confidential stay and if they have opted-out of our directory, we cannot deliver the eCard.
  • The hospital has no mechanism in place to allow a patient to reply to eCard messages.
