The Owensboro Health Foundation has begun its annual “Lights for Life” holiday season tribute project, benefiting various patient and family assistance programs throughout the region. The community is invited to support Lights for Life by contributing in honor or in memory of a loved one.
“The lights make thoughtful gifts to pay tribute to family, friends, school teachers, physicians, caregivers, ministers, co-workers, or anyone who has held a special place in your life,” a release from Owensboro Health reads.
The names of those honored with Lights for Life will be listed in the Lights for Life Online Tribute Book, and in tributes published in the Messenger-Inquirer, Grayson County News-Gazette, The Leader News, and The Times Argus. Additionally, OHRS will send a card to each person to notify them of the tribute.
The project spans Owensboro Health Regional Hospital, Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital, and Owensboro Health Twin Lakes Medical Center.
Owensboro Health Foundation served more than 17,000 individuals in the past year with services such as: free mammograms and other diagnostic services to women, care bears for children in the hospital, free car seats and bike helmets to families in need, equipment to help care for NICU infants in their earliest days, hospitality suites providing a home away from home for families of patients, medication assistance to cancer patients and much more.
Proceeds from Lights For Life help provide funding for these programs and services that help meet the healthcare needs of patients and their families and the greater community.
