Santa, Families and Trees: Our 2018 Holiday Events (Slideshow)

It was a busy holiday season at the Health System. Take a look back at some of the ways we celebrated with our patients, team members and the community. We hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and we wish you a very happy and healthy 2019!

  • UVA Hospital Auxiliary’s Lights of Love fundraiser — The Lights of Love tree lighting ceremony raises money for Hospital Auxiliary projects that benefit patients and families. These include bedside musicians, visits from therapy dogs and flowers for patients.
  • Santa photos — Santa visited the NICU to take photos with babies and their families.
  • UVA Children’s Hospital families shop for their kids — We invited parents of hospitalized children to do some “secret shopping” for their children at a holiday shop inside the hospital. UVA employees and other local organizations, including Mason’s Toy Box and individual donors, donated the gifts.
