RARITAN TWP., NJ - For more than 28 years, the Lights of Love program has been a time-honored tradition at Hunterdon Medical Center. 

Since its inception, the program has raised more than $650,000, which allows Hunterdon Healthcare – HMC’s corporate parent -  to continue to provide healthcare for the immediate community and the surrounding areas.

Each year, the Lights of Love evergreen tree, located on the front lawn of the Hunterdon Medical Center campus on Route 31 here, is illuminated with thousands of lights. Each represents a gift received from a donor to honor or memorialize their loved ones. Donations to Lights of Love are received from around the country.
