“Boston Children’s Hospital is not only well-known, it is respected across the world for its outstanding patient care and pediatric research,” said Michael Flieger, Chief Financial Officer, Osram Americas Region, headquartered in Wilmington, Massachusetts. “As a global organization, we are proud to work with Boston Children’s Hospital to help support the many families who travel both nationally and internationally so that their children can receive the medical care they so desperately need.”

During the Light Up Our Hospital event on Feb. 15, 2018, buildings and businesses around the City of Boston will simultaneously light up in blue, the hospital’s signature color, to show their support for the city’s youngest patients. The buildings and businesses, as well as government offices, currently committed to lighting up include 100 Northern Avenue, Boston City Hall, Cambridge Hyatt, Mass College of Art and Design, Post Office Square, Sheraton Boston, and other 23 entities.

To support the partnership, Osram has given a $250,000 gift to Boston Children’s, and donated light-up bracelets which will be available to patients at Boston Children’s Hospital, their families, and hospital employees as a fundraising opportunity. The gift and all proceeds from the bracelets will benefit the Every Child Fund, which supports the areas of greatest need at Boston Children’s Hospital. Additionally, Osram employees and their families will have the opportunity to volunteer at Boston Children’s Hospital as part of the three-year partnership to show their support for patients and families.

“We’re thrilled to have joined forces with Osram for the ‘Light Up’ our Hospital initiative and are enthusiastic about where this partnership will take us over the next three years,” said Dick Argys, Chief Administrative Officer at Boston Children’s Hospital. “Together, we will not only brighten the lives of patients and families visiting the hospital, but also will work to build a support system of hope by spreading the light throughout the City of Boston.”
