From the Heart Gala 2021

What a night! 
Together we raised more than $148,000 to support women’s health, Medical Assistant training, ongoing vaccination efforts and more innovative ways to ensure everyone in our communities can access great health care. Thank you!


Our theme this year centers around three words: Innovation, Investment & Impact.
Our virtual program will underscore this theme and show that HHC not only weathered the last year but is emerging stronger.

Join us as we celebrate investing in the future with workforce development initiatives and making lasting impacts in the lives of our patients.
