Patient E-cards

Thanks for using our patient e-card system. From here you will be able to send a greeting or get well card to a current OU Medicine hospital patient. 

How our E-card System Works

When you send a card to a patient at OU Medical Center, OU Medical Center Edmond, or The Children's Hospital, volunteer services in the hospital will receive and print your card. Then, a volunteer will attempt to deliver your card to the patient's unit. Please keep in mind that E-cards are available to inpatients only and are usually delivered within 1-2 business days. Be sure to spell the patient's first and last name correctly so we can accurately identify the location of the patient in the hospital.

Points to consider:

  • E-cards will be delivered Monday through Friday, 8-4PM.

  • E-cards received later in the day will be delivered the following day.

  • E-cards received on weekends will be delivered on the following business day.

  • E-card delivery on holidays may be delayed until after the holidays.

  • E-cards should not include private patient medical information.

  • E-cards cannot be delivered to patients that we are unable to locate, who have been discharged, or who have requested their status as a patient not be disclosed.

  • E-cards will not be forwarded to a patient after discharge.

We will do our best to ensure patients receive their cards as quickly as possible. However, large volumes of cards may take longer to print and deliver.
