The Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital recently celebrated the first day of winter with a special snow surprise event for pediatric patients and their families. The children’s hospital contracted with a company to make artificial snow on an outside garden for patients to enjoy for the holiday season. Patients were invited to visit the outdoor garden to experience the snow. They also viewed the festivities from inside while enjoying holiday treats and refreshments. Stephen Percy, M.D., interim chair of the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital, said the event helped to make the holidays a bit brighter for the patients and got their minds off their hospital stay.
