Highland Hospital’s 13th Annual Gala is April 6
Whimsical garden-themed evening to feature aerial performers
Monday, April 01, 2019
Highland Hospital’s 2019 Gala will be held Saturday, April 6 at 6 p.m. at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. Funds raised through the gala will support Highland’s private bed modernization project.
This year’s gala features a whimsical garden theme with lush greenery, aerial performers, and many surprises. Guests will enjoy both silent and live auctions, impactful patient stories, and lively entertainment.
The private bed modernization project is part of an addition that will transform nearly all of Highland Hospital’s patient care rooms to private. Private rooms reduce risk of hospital-acquired infections, create more space for families and visitors, and deliver the positive therapeutic impact of more privacy and less noise during treatment and recovery.
Specifically, the project is a 68,000 square feet vertical expansion of the hospital’s southeast wing that will add four floors. Three of the floors will be devoted to 60 private patient care rooms, 20 rooms for each floor. This will allow Highland to shift patients currently in semi-private rooms to private patient care rooms. The remaining floor will be used for other clinical programs.
