Mercer Health Hospital in Coldwater sponsors an annual event called “Play Hospital” for kindergarten-age children from the local schools.
This year it was held each day of the week of April 16-20. These children come on buses to the hospital to tour seven areas in the hospital. Volunteers lead a group of about 10 children on a tour through the hospital to the seven designated areas. At each area, a hospital employee talks to the children and shows them different objects and explains their use.
This year, Sister Martha volunteered to help with this fun and rewarding event on April 18. The kids had a blast!
