SwedishAmerican Hospital will kick-off the holidays for its staff and patients with its annual “Light the Lights” tree lighting celebration on Wednesday, December 7, from 2 to 3:30 PM in the Heart Hospital lobby, Charles Street entrance.

A highlight of the event will be therapy dogs from SwedishAmerican's Caring Canines program. The dogs, who have completed training and visit patients within the hospital, will be dressed in holiday attire. The SwedishAmerican mascot, SAM the dog, also will be in attendance.

In addition, President and CEO Dr. Bill Gorski and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Michael Born will offer a brief holiday message, and holiday music will be playing for visitors throughout the afternoon. Cookies, punch and coffee will be served to all.
