Christmas time in the hospital: Rekha Jose, Clinical Nurse Manager
Christmas is a wonderful time of the year around the hospital for many reasons. Some of my fondest memories from working here over Christmas cannot be defined by individual moments. What is memorable for me is the love that is shared when the family of patients come to visit. It’s beautiful to see patients uplifted by the love of their family when they spend time together during this very special time of year.

Christmas around the hospital is always a magical time of year. There’s a sense of unity among staff and patients throughout the holidays. Some patients choose to go home and spend Christmas with their family if they’re feeling well enough. It’s great to see the excitement on their faces when they are heading off for the day.
