University of Maryland Medical System Hospitals Light Up in Green Across the State to Honor Military Veterans

BALTIMORE, Md. – The University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) will visibly demonstrate support for the state’s veterans this week by illuminating all of its hospitals in green. Each evening, as part of the national Operation Green Light initiative, member hospitals will literally shine the light on veterans and available resources to help them transition into civilian culture.

This is the inaugural year of Operation Green Light. Governor Hogan recently announced Maryland’s participation in the initiative, which at the state level is being led by the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs among other state organizations. Landmark buildings throughout the state will light up in green as part of Operation Green Light – including 12 UMMS hospitals and medical facilities.

“We are grateful to all of Maryland’s veterans, including those who have continued their selfless service for others as health care professionals in our System. On behalf of all our team members we thank veterans this week and beyond,” said Mohan Suntha, MD, MBA, President and CEO of UMMS.
