Marlborough Hospital will mark a century of caring with a Tree of Light event on Dec. 16, when the star of the evening will be a tree decorated with lights and ornaments donated by patients, their families, hospital employees, and members of the community.
“We want to thank our many supporters and acknowledge all the lives that have been touched over the past 100 years,” saidd Ellen Carlucci, the hospital's vice president of development, in a press release. “Add up all the lives that have been cared for and treated at Marlborough Hospital and the number is astounding.”
Though the hospital, founded by Hannah Bigelow, MD, opened in 1890, this year marks one century at its Union Street address.
The tree will be decorated by angels purchased in memory of loved ones, and shining stars purchased in honor of physicians, nurses and other hospital employees. Snowflakes and lights will represent appreciation for the hospital, according to a press release.
For more information about purchasing an ornament or to learn more about joining the hospital’s Century Club or Bigelow Society, contact Ellen Carlucci at 508-486-5807.
The even will be held at 157 Union Street in the Leahy Conference Room, with festivities beginning at 5 p.m.
