New London Hospital (NLH) held its 14th Annual Benefit at The Fells in Newbury on Friday, September 13. Close to 200 attendees helped raise enough funds for the hospital to purchase four Lucas Chest Compression Devices for NLH Emergency Medical Services (EMS). These automated CPR units improve the quality of chest compressions during critical live-saving situations and allow first responders to attend to the patients other needs during an emergency.
The evening also featured several tributes to NLH President and CEO Bruce King who recently announced his pending retirement this winter after 16 years in the role. One anonymous donor even purchased one of the Lucas units in King’s honor.
“I’m grateful and humbled for the support our community continues to give NLH,” said Bruce King. “These Lucas CPR units save lives and knowing we are able to provide the best available technology for our service region is comforting.”
