Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation’s Gala has been a signature philanthropic event for nearly two decades, raising funds in support of Chesapeake Regional Healthcare. Net proceeds from our annual black-tie and themed event provide substantial support to help fund program and equipment needs, such as the expansion of the Sidney M. Oman Cancer Treatment Center, the renovation of the Emergency Department and the purchase of necessary equipment to support the Level II Nursery. Most recently, the 2016 50’s themed Gala funded the purchase of the da Vinci XI Surgical System. As the most advanced piece of technology in robotics surgery, the da Vinci XI features a new overhead arm structure allowing the surgeon to approach from any position, enhanced ergonomics for the surgeon, wristed instruments for better motion and 3D-HD visualization.
To advance Chesapeake Regional Healthcare’s commitment to innovation and its mission of improving the quality of life in our community, the Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation’s Gala, to be held on January 28, 2017, will help support Chesapeake Regional Healthcare’s Mother Baby Unit. One of the top delivery hospitals in the area, Chesapeake Regional Healthcare averages around 10 births a day and reported more than 2,400 births in fiscal year 2015. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation Endowment.
