For the thirteenth year, the CHC Volunteers will host their annual "Celebration of Lights" campaign.  The "Celebration of Lights" event was created in an effort to raise funds to benefit patients, visitors, and the community. This is also a great opportunity to share the spirit of the holiday season with friends, family, and neighbors while honoring or remembering someone special. This year's proceeds will go toward the maintenance of the CHC Memorial Garden and future CHC Volunteers projects. The donations are tax deductible as a contribution to the CHC Foundation.

For more information or special donation envelopes for this project, call the CHC Volunteers at 517.279.5254. Donations must be turned in no later than November 27 to have names placed in the program.

The Community Health Center of Branch County is a non-profit acute care hospital.
Introduction
On the 18th of November, 1939, the Community Health Center of Branch County opened its doors to serve the healthcare needs of the area with 36 beds and 70 employees. Since then two major additions have been made to the original structure, one in 1955 and the larger in 1971. In 2003 a 27,000 square foot renovation and 16,000 square foot addition were completed. CHC now has 102 acute medical and 16 adult pychiatric beds with over 550 employees serving the Branch County area.
