Tree of Light gathering

Approximately 200 people gathered at Greenwich Hospital’s annual Tree of Light celebration that benefited the Home Hospice Program. 

The nondenominational event featured readings and music, culminating with the lighting of an evergreen tree strung with hundreds of lights in memory of loved ones. 

Donations from the purchase of lights support the hospital’s Home Hospice Program, which provides end-of-life care to individuals in their homes. 

This year’s celebration included a welcome from Norman G. Roth, Greenwich Hospital president and CEO, and remarks by the medical director of palliative care, Dr. Donna Coletti.

The tree will remain on the terrace throughout December before being planted in the hospital’s Carl and Dorothy Bennett Community Garden.
