SwedishAmerican kicks off the holidays with the 'Light the Lights' celebration
SwedishAmerican Hospital is officially in holiday mode. The hospital kicked off its 'Light the Lights' celebration, an annual tree lighting event and party.
The Caring Canines Program was a highlight of the event. Dogs were dressed up in festive costumes to meet and greet with staff and patients. The event also featured food, drinks and music all to give back to the people at the hospital.
"Our staff work hard and they take care of people at all hours of the day and night, regardless it it's a holiday or not, and so this is just one of those small things we can do to say thank you to our staff," hospital COO Don Daniels said.
This isn't the first time for the event. SwedishAmerican hosts 'Light the Lights' every year for its staff and patients.
