The Westerly Hospital Auxiliary has begun its 28th annual Lights of Love campaign. Through the Lights of Love program, the community is invited to honor or remember a loved one by purchasing a “Love Light” in their name in denominations of $5, $25, $50, $100, or more. Names of those honored or remembered will be posted weekly on a display board in the Hospital lobby, and a Holiday Tree at the front entrance of the Hospital will display lights in honor or remembrance of loved ones. Proceeds from this year’s campaign will be used to upgrade the hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation department’s telemetry system, a system that provides continuous monitoring of a patient’s heart rate and rhythm.
The annual Celebration of the Lights of Love reception will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. in the Hospital lobby. This year’s ceremony will be held in honor of Nick Stahl, Executive Director of the Westerly Hospital Foundation for his donation of time and expertise to The Westerly Hospital Auxiliary. Local harpist Maggie Day will provide music.

Founded in 1926, The Westerly Hospital Auxiliary serves The Westerly Hospital and its patients by providing material assistance beyond the scope of the Hospital budget through various fundraising activities held throughout the year. The Auxiliary also sponsors special events, educational lectures, a scholarship program, and community relations activities and oversees the Hospital’s Gift Shop which is staffed by volunteers.
