It’s Christmas time at the Dr. G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital, and that means it’s time for the annual departmental Christmas tree competition.
Staff say it’s a fun way to spread some festive Christmas cheer and put smiles on patients faces, while growing as a team.
As in year’s past, there are some diverse trees on display, including health records pet tree, decorated with photos of family pets, animal decorations, toys, and cans of cat food; obstetrics snowman tree, complete with bulbs marked with the weight of newborns; radiology’s Scrabble tree, and housekeeping’s homey display featuring Santa and some children relaxing by the fire — unfortunately, one of the stockings hung with care on the chimney is filled with coal.
Residents of Dr. Albert O'Mahony Memorial Manor decorate a special tree with ornaments of their own.
Trees will be judged on Tuesday, Dec. 18.
