New Location: Arthrex One Conference Center

Get the Ball rolling…at Body in Motion!

NCH Healthcare System announces the new date and location for the annual NCH Hospital Ball: February 11 at the beautiful Arthrex One Conference Center.

A special thank you to our Honorary Chairs Erika and Reinhold Schmieding for supporting NCH’s plans for our community. We are delighted to be back on track after Hurricane Ian prompted our need to reschedule the Ball, which was initially set for November 2022.

The 64th NCH Hospital Ball will be action packed and exciting with lots of Body in Motion surprises, ranging from acrobats to the fabulous party band SoundUp! The proceeds of this evening will benefit NCH Healthcare System Orthopedics. For the past 63 years, the Hospital Ball has been, and continues to be, an important fundraiser to help our patients receive the world-class healthcare everyone deserves.

The evening’s program also will include the popular Physician of the Year and Nurses of the Year Awards presentations, a live auction and fund-a-need, and, of course, dancing!

Tickets and sponsorships are LIMITED – you don’t want to miss Body in Motion! For more information contact Monica Biondo at 239-624-2019.

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.
