Babies Born This Month at HSHS St. John’s Hospital Receive Christmas Hats

The holiday season is a special time of year – especially for families having babies at HSHS St. John’s Hospital. During the Christmas season, the hospital is welcoming babies with a special gift.

Every baby born at St. John’s this month has received a special Christmas hat. These hats are an extra reminder to the parents that their baby is a Christmas miracle. So far this year, HSHS St. John’s Women and Infants Center has given out more than 100 Christmas hats.

“We’re happy to do something special for our families during the holiday season,” said Vernessa Glover, executive director of HSHS St. John’s Children’s Hospital and Women’s Services. “We’ve given seasonal gifts at other times during the year, and everyone always appreciates the extra cheer.”

St. John’s is honored to enjoy so many births at the hospital and to have the opportunity to give back to the families that allow us to take care of them each and every day.
