Lights of Love Program

The MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital Auxiliary started the Lights of Love program in 1974. Yearly contributions to this program, which average a total of $30,000, allow the hospital to purchase new medical equipment and enhance services related to patient care. The program enables you to make personal gifts to MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital for reasons such as:

  • To express gratitude for the care you or a loved one has received at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital
  • To wish a friend or loved one happy birthday or anniversary
  • To congratulate someone on the occasion of a wedding, graduation or achievement
  • To remember a friend or loved one who has passed away

Recognizing Our Donors

The names of those who contribute to Lights of Love are featured on the Lights of Love donor wall in the lobby of the hospital. Donations of $1,000 or more are recognized with a plaque on the Perpetual Lights of Love donor wall, also in the hospital lobby.
