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 716-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. 

NCH remains grateful to our community and all of our generous donors who invest so much in enhancing the quality of and access to care for all people in Naples and Southwest Florida.
