Baystate Wing Auxiliary to Sponsor Luncheon, Fashion Show on May 5

LUDLOW — The Baystate Wing Hospital Auxiliary invites the community to a luncheon and fashion show featuring guest appearances by Lexi Woloshchuk, Miss Massachusetts Teen USA, and Allissa Latham, Miss Massachusetts USA 2018. The event will be held at the Ludlow Country Club, 1 Tony Lima Dr., Ludlow, on Saturday, May 5 from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will also feature DJ Andy Bukowski from Real Oldies Radio and Peter Newland from FAT and Armani Tuxedo. Tickets cost $35 per person.

“Through their fundraising efforts in the gift shop and special-event sales, the auxiliary members and volunteers have actively supported local healthcare in the region by offering scholarships to local graduating high-school seniors who are pursuing their education in the field of healthcare,” said Teresa Grove, vice president of the auxiliary and Philanthropy officer for the Baystate Health Eastern Region, which includes Baystate Wing and Baystate Mary Lane Outpatient Center. “Additionally, funds raised by our auxiliary continue to support the Baystate Wing Emergency Department capital campaign.”

The Emergency Department expansion project at Baystate Wing Hospital, which is expected to be complete this September, features 20 patient rooms, including trauma, behavioral-health, and other dedicated specialty-care areas. Private rooms will replace curtained bays to enhance patient privacy, and a dedicated space will be created for behavioral-health patients. Additionally, patients will have access to sophisticated medical technology, including CT scan and radiology (X-ray) services, all located in the new, 17,800-square-foot space. Once completed, the $17.2 million project will expand the Emergency Department to better accommodate the needs of the community by supporting the current annual patient volume of 24,000 visits.
