Mid Coast Hospital Glows Purple to Shed Light on Domestic Violence



On the nights of October 1 through 7, the exterior lights on Mid Coast Hospital's signature tower will be glowing purple to shine a light on domestic violence. Mid Coast Hospital is pleased to make this symbolic gesture as part of a community-wide effort to raise critical public awareness to bring an end to domestic abuse.

Coleen Farrell, Vice President of Human Resources for Mid Coast Health Services, collaborated with the Working Group on Family Violence, one of the sponsoring organizations of the Glowing Purple effort.

Upon learning about the coast-to-coast campaign, "I immediately thought of our beautiful tower and what a powerful statement we could make with it," Farrell said.

"As an institution, we stand against domestic violence, and that's the bottom line," Farrell continued. "This is a wonderful opportunity to bring attention to an issue that impacts all of us."

Mid Coast encourages support of the efforts of those in our area on the front lines of confronting domestic violence: Family Crisis Services, Local and County Law Enforcement Agencies, Sagadahoc County Working Group on Family Violence, and-on the national level-the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
