The annual Love Light Celebrations are presented by The Medical Center Auxiliary to recognize Love Light donations made throughout the year. Love Light donations support Hospice of NGMC, which provides in-home nursing care for patients with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses.

For a minimum donation of $10, a light will be placed on the tree. Donations of $100 or more are designated as “Star” gifts, and donations of $500 or more are “Angel” gifts. Love Light donations can be made year-round in honor or memory of loved ones, and that person or their family will receive a card notifying them of the gift. One-hundred percent of donations benefit Hospice of NGMC. Hospice team members will be available to speak with community members at the lighting celebrations.

“My husband and I are honored to serve as chairs of such a meaningful cause and to watch others give back to NGHS in this way,” said Kathy Lahiry, who serves as co-chair of the 2018 Love Light celebrations along with her husband, Dr. Anup Lahiry. “We are so appreciative of your generous contributions which will be donated to Hospice of NGMC to support all they do to care for those in our community.”

If you have a fever and cough or difficulty breathing, these steps will help you find the care you need and limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our region:

  • Call before you come

    Please call your doctor's office or an urgent care clinic for advice about where you should go for treatment.

    Calling 9-1-1 is always the fastest and most efficient way to get proper treatment for medical emergencies.

  • Consider staying home and taking advantage of an E-Visit

The best way to avoid infection is to avoid exposure. Here are simple steps you can take to lower your risk of catching or spreading illness:

  • Wear a mask – a cloth face cover can protect other people in case you are infected. Everyone should wear a cloth face cover in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household. Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Avoid close contact – maintain 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household. If someone in your household is sick, maintain 6 feet of distance from them as well.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching tissues.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces to help prevent the spread of germs
  • Monitor your health daily –  Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
