Heart & Soul – A Community Celebration
This special evening honors the incredible accomplishments of the first-responders and emergency personnel who provide exemplary life-saving care to our community. Members from each of the EMS squads throughout Newton Medical Center’s service area will be present. In addition, Heart & Soul will recognize our Automated External Defibrillator Program, which provides AEDs and training at reduced rates. Since its creation in 2001, the program has trained more than 4,000 individuals and saved more than 50 lives in our community.

Newton Rotary Golf
Fifty-two years ago, Ed McCracken, George Morville, Pat Dolan, Joseph Quinn and Milt Woolfenden planned a Rotary golf tournament to benefit the local hospital.

The C. Edward McCracken Festival of Lights

The event transforms the hospital grounds, dramatically illuminating the main entrance with enduring hope and a spectacular fireworks display.
