Shine a light on the work of the hospital and foundation

Sid and Barbara Field

Lights for Life trees light up winter nights in Ashland and Talent, but did you know that the program’s donations brighten the whole year for Asante Ashland Community Hospital and its patients?

Longtime supporters Sid and Barbara Field know.

Over the past two decades the Fields have supported Ashland Community Hospital Foundation because of the care, comfort, and compassion that both have received as patients at Asante Ashland Community Hospital.

Whether for major surgery or routine tests, the staff is always responsive to our concerns and needs, Barbara says.

“My favorite treatment has always been the offer of a warm blanket,” she confides. “The hospital has talented physicians and medical professionals, and is a treasured jewel, vital to all residents and patients who come for treatment.”

Sid jokes that with his lack of ability to operate power tools with blades and chains it’s comforting to know there is a skilled Emergency Department nearby.

On a more serious note he explains, “I have had the opportunity to work directly with the organization, as a former board member of the Ashland Community Hospital Foundation. The funds generated through our donations are used to assist in upgrading facilities and purchase new state-of- the-art equipment for our patients and medical staff.”

Sid and Barbara agree: “It is important for us all to continue our financial support of the hospital and foundation. It’s key to our quality of life.”

If you share Sid and Barbara’s sentiments about the value Asante Ashland Community Hospital adds to the health of our community, please support our work with a gift to Lights for Life.
