Smyrna, Tenn., December 30, 2020 – TriStar StoneCrest Medical Center in Smyrna began a new campaign last week called “Keep Your Lights Up for Healthcare and Frontline Heroes.” The initiative is a way to show support for healthcare and all frontline workers who have fought the COVID-19 pandemic for the past nine months by leaving holiday lights up until Jan. 31, 2021. The hospital is asking every person, business and community to follow through with the showcase of solidarity.
The reason behind the campaign is for residents to leave their Christmas lights up as a way for these heroes to see your support and gratitude as they drive to and from their shifts. Reports indicate that many front-line workers are weary from the physical and emotional toll of what they see every day.
TriStar StoneCrest Medical Center said in a statement released on Wednesday that they want healthcare and all frontline heroes across Rutherford County to see the support and gratitude from our communities and our colleagues. The release said that the Smyrna hospital is asking for help to honor and re-energize all healthcare and frontline heroes in our community and around the state with this symbol of support and gratitude.
TriStar facilities across the state told the media that they are committed to the campaign as a way to “shine a light” as the nation heads toward the end of the pandemic with vaccines finally being made available to the public.
