Sample Resignation Letter when Leaving for Medical Reasons

Dr. Davida Onkowski

Westside Medical Center
511 West 119 Street
New York, NY 10015

Dear Dr Onkowski,

I regret to inform you that I am resigning my job at Westside Medical Center effective November 3, 2009. My doctor has advised me that it is detrimental to my health to continue my full-time job.

Everyone at Westside has been exceptionally kind and supportive throughout my illness, which has required me to take many days off, as you know. I don’t know how to adequately thank you for the opportunity to work at Westside all these years and especially for your help during this trying time.

Attached is a letter from my doctor supporting my claim for disability benefits in accordance with the company benefits plan.

Thank you for everything. Please let me know how I can help ease the transition.

Yours sincerely,

David G. Smith
