The NCH Healthcare System will host its 64th annual Hospital Ball benefiting NCH Orthopedics on Saturday, November 5, 2022 at The Ritz Carlton, Naples.

Today’s breakthroughs in orthopedic medicine have delivered unending possibilities for keeping our bodies in motion. Thus, our Ball theme: Body in Motion, benefiting NCH Orthopedics.

The event promises to dazzle with entertainment designed to showcase beautiful and powerful bodies in motion, and, of course, there will be a fabulous dinner, live auction, and dancing. Live entertainment this year is by the high-energy SoundUp Band.

We are pleased to announce our Honorary Hospital Ball Chairs, Arthrex President and Founder, Reinhold Schmieding, and his wife Erika. We are grateful for their partnership and also for providing our venue for the Hospital Ball kick-off event on August 18 at Arthrex.

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.
