Walla Walla, WA--Walla Walla General Hospital's annual gala was a rousing success, thanks to the Walla Walla community.

Held Saturday, Nov. 15 at the Marcus Whitman Hotel & Conference Center, the event featured award-winning photographer Steve Uzzell, one of the country's top advertising and corporate photographers.

The gala raised more than $40,000 for major upgrades to the hospital's electronic clinical information system, improving the quality of care provided by the hospital's staff and physicians.

"Walla Walla General Hospital has been an integral part of this community for more than a century," says hospital President Monty Knittel. "In past years we have benefited from the support of our community--and this year was no different. I'm grateful to be part of a community where we can support the hospital while having a great evening."
