NCH Healthcare System and Hospital Ball Chairs, Dr. Doug and Dianna Harrington invite our entire community to virtually celebrate the

About the Hospital Ball
Since the first NCH Hospital Ball in 1958, philanthropic support from our community has had a transformational effect on the growth of NCH; from a small nonprofit 50-bed hospital, to a nationally recognized 713-bed, two hospital healthcare system. Specifically, proceeds from the annual Ball allow NCH to advance patient care initiatives and provide life-saving services in a number of critical areas including; cardiology, stroke, pediatrics and emergency care.
