2022 Dinner by Starlight

After two years of celebrating Dinner by Starlight virtually, we are excited to be gathering in person in 2022! This year, our Honorary Star is Dr. Kathryn C. Worrilow, Founder and CEO of LifeAire Systems.In 2017, the LifeAire team designed and installed an experimental air purification system, serving 14 patient rooms on the fifth floor of St. Luke’s Allentown Campus. This advanced technology sterilizes the air flowing through the HVAC system, removing or neutralizing all pathogens–including COVID-19–that might otherwise infect patients recovering on the unit from illness or surgery. A second system was later installed on the fifth floor to purify air inflow to the remaining 16 rooms of the unit. The measurable clinical benefits of the air purification system include decreasing a patient’s hospital stay, making hospitalizations 23% less costly. St. Luke’s Allentown Campus is thankful to have industry partners like LifeAire to help advance the already safe and exceptional care we provide to our patients.Proceeds from Dinner by Starlight 2022 will benefit the new Mother & Baby Tower, currently under construction at our Allentown campus.
