2022 Light Up a Life Campaign
- November 08, 2022 - January 31, 2023
First introduced in 1994, the annual Light Up a Life campaign has raised nearly $3.5 million and funded a variety of equipment for NHH over the years – everything from surgical scopes, to anaesthetic machines, hospital beds, and the MRI.
This year, NHH Foundation is thrilled to welcome Dr. Paul Ketov, NHH’s Chief of Emergency Department and Acute Services as our Light Up a Life Chair.
“I am proud to be serving as Chair of this year’s Light Up a Life campaign,” shares Dr. Ketov. “While emergency medicine is often reactive, keeping our hospital up to date and replacing aging equipment with modern technology should not be. It is no secret our community is growing and together we must be proactive to ensure that when patients come through our doors seeking care, we have the equipment we need to test, diagnose, and treat them.”
Proceeds raised will support an upgrade to the hospital’s cardiac monitoring system, which will include additional cardiac monitors and a new central monitoring system in NHH’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Building on the success of last year’s campaign, the primary goal of the 2022 Light Up a Life campaign is to raise the remaining $258,000 to complete this half a million-dollar upgrade.
“Present in many patient rooms, cardiac monitors are our electronic partners at the bedside and are instrumental in caring for some of our most vulnerable patients,” continues Ketov. “These machines are so useful they are ubiquitous across our hospital and follow a patient’s journey from the Emergency Department to stays in inpatient units and the Intensive Care Unit. Community support will help fund this critical equipment.”
