Pediatric patients get into the holiday spirit at Midtown Medical Center

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Pediatric patients at Midtown Medical Center got into the holiday spirit at the Gingerbread House Jubilee today, Dec. 4.

The event gave the children an opportunity to make their own gingerbread houses in the Pediatric unit playroom.

Mailey Wright is an employee in the Pediatric unit. She says, "It's just something really therapeutic for them to do whilethey're here, come in the playroom, and decorate their own gingerbread house,and just bring that normalization into the hospital,"

Wright says their goal is to make sure the kids get to participate in holiday activities they would be doing if they were not in the hospital.
