Santa Spreads Holiday Cheer at the Methodist Women's Hospital NICU

Published: Dec. 20, 2021

Some tiny patients are spending their first Christmas in the Methodist Women’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), but that doesn’t mean they're missing out on seeing Jolly ol’ Saint Nick! Santa made a special NICU visit Friday, and as he made his rounds, a common theme emerged as he asked each child what they wanted for Christmas: To be home in time for the new year, of course!

Santa handed out ornaments, books and even gifts for the siblings of these babies. Parents were able to get photos with Santa – something they say will always help them remember this special memory from their baby’s first Christmas. We thank all of our hospital and NICU staff for making this possible.
