2019 Hospital Ball


About the Beneficiary 
Proceeds from this year's Hospital Ball will support the $35 million expansion and modernization of the Emergency Department at NCH Baker Hospital Downtown, which treats and cares for nearly 40,000 patients annually.

The state-of-the-art renovation allows NCH to double the department size to 47,000 square feet and improves the patient experience by:
• Expanding from 32 to 43 private beds with individual glassed-in treatment rooms to increase     privacy, enhance lighting and reduce noise.
• Adding a 19,300 square-foot, second floor observation area with 24 bays.
• Constructing larger nurse stations and implementing a care delivery system to achieve higher     levels of patient satisfaction to a growing and aging population. 

We are committed to serving you, not only with 24-hour access to high-quality emergency care but also nationally recognized treatment for heart attack and stroke.

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.
