NGMC once again celebrating Love Light season

Published: Thursday, December 8, 2022

Northeast Georgia Medical Center’s (NGMC) annual Love Light event demonstrates how Hospice of NGMC makes a difference for families and patients in the region. This year, the event will take place on Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. on Northeast Georgia Health System’s (NGHS) Facebook page – giving friends and families from all over the chance to honor and celebrate the lives of their loved ones.

During the event, viewers will hear a patient’s story, partake in a candle lighting remembrance ceremony and see the Love Light tree lightings in Barrow, Braselton, Gainesville and Lumpkin.

“We are so grateful to our donors, whose generosity allows us to provide complementary services and resources to better care for the needs of our hospice patients and their families,” said Leena Dutta, MD, medical director for Hospice of NGMC. “Love Light is a season of giving, and we hope our community will join us virtually in this celebration of love and remembrance.”

The event marks the beginning of the Love Light season, reminding the community to purchase a “love light” to honor the life and memory of a loved one. Donations during Love Light season help ensure those nearing the end of life receive complementary services that allow them to live as fully and comfortably as possible. Donations made during the holiday season on behalf of someone will be followed by a card notifying that person or their family of the gift.

To make a donation or learn more about Love Light, visit or call the NGHS Auxiliary at 770-219-1830.
