Sydney’s first Christmas: Photos with Santa in the NICU at SickKids

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) has many activities planned throughout the month of December to help families feel at home during the holiday season. SickKids staff and volunteers do their best to create a fun and familiar environment for families, in an effort to normalize the hospital experience.

One of these special events is Photos with Santa. Carlos Barrios, Echo Sonographer in the Cardiology Department at SickKids, spread holiday cheer to patients and families in the NICU and CCCU as he visited patients who couldn’t leave their rooms for photos with Santa in the Bear Theatre.
