Deborah Hospital Foundation is hosting its 13th Annual Red Tie Gala on Saturday, November 10, 2018, at the Hilton Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing.
The Deborah Hospital Foundation Gala is in support of Deborah Heart and Lung Center. For 96 years, Deborah has been providing ground-breaking health care, delivering the most sophisticated level of care in the country for cardiac, pulmonary, and vascular services. The hospital has also been recognized by the federal government as one of the few 4-Star rated hospitals in the tri-state region. Deborah’s founding mission, “There is No Price on Life,” continues to guide and shape the organization, and the hospital has never rendered a bill to a patient. In fact, it is one of only three hospitals nationally that does not bill its patients, and is the only one that treats adults and children. The Foundation’s Gala is one way that the Hospital is able to fund this mission.
“It is a great pleasure to once again be part of this amazing event,” said Gala Chair, Melissa McGrath. “The work done at Deborah is incredible, from clinical research studies to cutting-edge innovation and technology as well as its robust fellowship program training the next generation of doctors. Knowing that in addition to receiving the very best medical care, patients don’t have to worry about financial stresses during times of medical emergencies is truly wonderful. It is gratifying to support such a dedicated organization.”
Deborah Heart and Lung Center and Deborah Hospital Foundation’s President and CEO, Joseph Chirichella, agreed. “We strive to maintain an exceptional level of medical care and provide our patients with an outstanding experience. Our patients, neighbors, friends, and family are the heart and core of our focus here at Deborah. Our mission of compassionate kindness ensures that no one leaves Deborah with financial stress because of a medical bill. I am truly grateful that the Foundation is able to aid in supporting this mission.”
The Gala kicks off at 6:00 p.m. with an elegant cocktail reception. Guests can browse the Silent Auction items offered that evening, including travel packages, sports tickets and memorabilia, performing arts tickets, and restaurants and destination events. A sumptuous meal, dancing to Philly’s top band Tribeca, surprise entertainment, and panoramic views of the Philadelphia evening skyline make for a memorable evening.
