Tribute in Lights is our annual tradition that invites the community to honor and memorialize family, friends, and special occasions. Our Wayne and Wyckoff campuses were beautifully illuminated during the 2017 holiday season – we hope you had the opportunity to see the lights.

It is a privilege to pay tribute to our donor’s loved ones, friends and occasions. Thank you to all who participated in our 2017 Tribute in Lights. We are so grateful for these meaningful gifts which enable us to continue our mission of health, healing, and wellness for people of all ages.
