31st Anniversary Heart to Heart Gala

Wednesday, Sept 25, 2019
Our nationally-known performer will be announced this Spring
Now spanning more than three decades, Heart to Heart Gala has focused regional attention on Kettering Medical Center's benchmark cardiovascular program and has raised over $7.5 million for advanced medical technology, patient-centered education and recovery, community cardiac and stroke screening and outreach, and advanced caregiver training.

Heart disease remains the most common cause of death in America for both women and men. Kettering continues to sprint ahead in the introduction of the newest techniques to treat heart and stroke patients and in developing community programs that foster disease prevention and wellness.

All of this, and much more, has been made possible by the generous sponsors, donors, and patrons of Heart to Heart, as well as the thousands who have been part of the great concert audiences.

When combined with the monies given by visionary and generous donors during the capital campaigns for the Kettering Cardiovascular Institute and the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Heart Hospital, $35 million has been raised by the Kettering Medical Center Foundation for Kettering's nationally recognized heart program.

Kettering Medical Center has consistently been included among America's top 100 hospitals, and its cardiovascular program among the nation's top 50. Kettering has been ranked among America's top 15 teaching hospitals, and a national insurance company recently announced Kettering's heart program was the best in Ohio.
