Noble Hospital to host 46th annual ball
WESTFIELD -- Bill and Jan Parks and Bo and Kristin Sullivan will serve as co-chairs for the 46th annual Noble Hospital Ball, the signature annual fundraising event for the hospital.
The black-tie gala provides financial support to enhance the outstanding level of care our community has come to expect from Noble Hospital. Proceeds from this year's event will benefit the Diagnostic Imaging Department toward the purchase of an X-ray Image Intensifier.
Sometimes referred to as a C-arm or fluoroscope in medical settings, it is an imaging device which uses X-rays and produces a live image feed, which is displayed on a television screen. The C-arm, with its variety of movements, is used in a variety of surgical procedures such as orthopedics and urology.
A portion of the proceeds will also be directed to the establishment of a scholarship benefiting students enrolled in the first class of the new Westfield State University Nursing Program.
With more than 600 employees, Noble Hospital serves more than 150,000 patients annually through many inpatient, outpatient, and specialty services. The hospital also provided more than $2 million in charity and uncompensated care in 2009.
