Funding Priority

The Highland Hospital gala is the hospital’s largest fundraising event of the year. For over ten years, community members and supporters have gathered to celebrate Highland Hospital and raise significant funds to help support the hospital’s signature clinical services and physical plant. Each year, the gala includes a silent and live auction, lively entertainment, and an opportunity to showcase how the hospital plays a key role in the community. Funds raised at the 2022 Highland gala will benefit Highland Hospital’s patient room privatization project. The new four-story, 80,000 square-foot tower will allow the hospital to transform nearly all of its in-patient clinical space to private rooms, mirroring a growing national trend. Private patient rooms improve privacy, create more space for families and visitors, reduce the risk of infection, and help speed recovery. The project will improve patient care and the patient experience, bringing privacy and comfort together with our ongoing mission of excellence in patient- and family-centered care.
