Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center employees created 57 Christmas wreaths and donated them to the Children's Home Society, The STAR Family Center and the Wit-Nest Domestic Abuse Center to help local families in-need decorate for the Christmas season.
Following this year's "Home for the Holidays" theme, each hospital department was challenged to decorate a wreath showcasing the cultures and traditions of its team members. The wreaths were then voted on by the Inclusivity Team, based on creativity, theme and reflection of sacred work. The hospital's laboratory team was this year's winner, followed by honorable mentions for the wreaths from the Patient Experience and Health Information Management departments.
This was the fourth year the hospital's Inclusivity Committee encouraged employees to team up and decorate wreaths, highlighting the organization's Christian mission of hope, health and healing. The wreaths were on display on the first floor of the hospital for most of December.
