Community Spreads Holiday Cheer at NHCH
Posted on Friday, December 20, 2013

The halls of the hospital have been filled with holiday carols and cheer this month, thanks to several different community groups.  Mahalo to Ms. Kristi’s 5th Grade Class at Parker School and the Youth Group from the Waimea 2nd ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for caroling through the halls of NHCH brightening the spirits of patients and staff. 

 



On Tuesday, December 10th, Ms. Kristi’s 5th grade class from Parker School in Waimea visited the hospital for the third year in a row to spread holiday cheer with patients and staff .  The 15 students sang in several areas of the hospital, including Family Birthing, Rehab, Imaging and Emergency Room.  Patients and staff thoroughly enjoyed hearing “Jingle Bells,” “Walking in a Winter Wonderland,” “Frosty the Snowman,” “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” and other holiday favorites. Mahalo to Ms. Kristi and her students for putting smiles on the faces of our patients and staff! 

On Tuesday, December 17th, the Youth Group from the Waimea 2nd Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints enjoyed the rare opportunity of serenading infant twins less than an hour old “Away In A Manager”.  Plus, visitors in the ER Waiting Room were brought to tears when they sang “Silent Night” and then laughter with their cute and quirky rendition of “Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer.”  Mahalo to the Youth Group from the Waimea 2nd Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for brightening the spirits of all the patients and staff who were lucky enough to hear your songs.

Last, but certainly not least, Santa stopped by on Thursday, December 19th to make sure patients and staff have been good this year.   Santa visited several patients in Med Surg, ER, Radiology, ICU and Oncology, plus, three infants and their siblings in our Family Birthing Unit.  A sincere mahalo to Hawaii Life Flight for bringing Santa to NHCH.
