During these extraordinary times, Beaumont wanted to show its appreciation for everything our team is doing. Through our #HealthCareHeroes campaign, we want to make it easy for our communities to share and demonstrate their gratitude for our health
Every evening at 8 p.m., beginning March 31, families are encouraged to step outside their front door and shine a flashlight toward their nearest hospital to show support for health care heroes across Southeast Michigan. Families are also encouraged to
swap out their porch light with a blue lightbulb as a sign of support for health care heroes and first responders.
“This pandemic can feel isolating and dark. That’s why we want to brighten the spirits of our health care heroes and also provide community members with opportunities to show support for our incredible health care workers,” Beaumont
Health Chief Nursing Officer Susan Grant said. “In addition to continuing to protect our staff and address their needs, we hope these kinds of activities will help reassure our team we’re all in this together.”
“Home Beams for Health Care Teams” is inspired by Beaumont’s popular annual holiday tradition, “Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams,”
which invites families to gather outside Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak and shine flashlights to show support for pediatric patients spending the holidays in hospital.
At Beaumont’s acute care campuses, you’ll see lawn signs to thank your team members; in the community you may see billboards with a message of thanks.
