“Once all the royal coins have been counted the King’s court is excited to announce that this year’s net proceeds are – get the trumpets ready – $125,000!  A night that will go down in the record books for sure,” stated C. Tracy Fiori, Event Coordinator for Nanticoke Health Services.

Staged at the “medieval courtyards” at Heritage Shores Club in Bridgeville, the dinner auction featured numerous silent and live auction items.

As the busiest and most utilized department within Nanticoke’s entire health system, the ED renovations will help meet the increasing needs of the community and will modernize and redesign the intake process, which will continue to improve patient outcomes and experiences.

It will also enable Nanticoke to serve patients faster and more efficiently, and accommodate anticipated growth in patient volume in the immediate future.
