SwedishAmerican celebrates Holiday Tree Lighting


Therapy canines wore their Christmas best while children and employees of SwedishAmerican Hospital sang carols marking the Hospital's Annual Holiday Tree Lighting.

The highlight of the event was a parade of dogs from SwedishAmerican's Caring Canines program wearing holiday costumes that included Santa Claus and reindeer.

Dr. Bill Gorski, President and CEO for SwedishAmerican, offered a holiday message honoring the therapy dogs.

Local musician Carl Cole was also on hand performing for patients, visitors, and hospital staff.
