The Auxiliary’s major fundraiser on behalf of Crouse Hospital is Lights of Love, an annual endeavor that involves the illumination of the Crouse clock tower in 3,000 white lights — a highly visible symbol of the holiday season in Central New York. The 2013 campaign marks the 26th anniversary of Lights of Love.
Each year proceeds benefit a different program or service of Crouse Hospital. For this 26th anniversary year, proceeds from our Lights of Love campaign will be used to recognize Crouse Hospital’s long history in women and infants care.
More babies are born at Crouse Hospital's Kienzle Family Maternity Center than any other area hospital. Because of our extensive maternity volumes, birthing beds need to be replaced on a regular basis. In support of mothers and babies, proceeds from this year’s Lights of Love campaign will be used to acquire a new state-of-the-art birthing bed for the hospital’s Kienzle Family Maternity Center.
During labor and delivery, the safety of mom and baby is our highest priority. The bed being purchased is ergonomically designed to support the birthing process every step of the way. A special mattress for comfort and pressure redistribution, gas-assisted mechanisms for positioning and a battery backup for transports are just a few of the features that will allow this equipment to be used in a very busy environment with a great deal of ease. Thank you for your donation to Lights of Love to benefit women and infants in our community.
