Our Lady of Lourdes Statue: A History
Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital is known for the iconic statue of Our Lady of Lourdes that has stood atop the Camden, N.J., hospital for 70 years. The two-story statue, which rises 185 feet above the ground, is a beacon of hope and healing for the City of Camden and beyond. Bathed in various colored lights in honor of our patients, special causes, and occasions, the statue is also a striking symbol against the night sky. Beginning at dusk on July 1, after the first full day of Virtua and Lourdes united, Our Lady will be lit blue to celebrate the occasion. Our Lady will continue to shine with blue light through July 7.*
