Santa Claus Pays A Visit To Wellington Regional

Santa with Emma and Milo Henderson, who received T-shirts, and little sister Gwyneth, who got her first Christmas book.

Every year, Santa Claus visits children all over the world, but it’s more difficult when little ones are in the hospital. For those kids, the Mall at Wellington Green teamed up with Wellington Regional Medical Center to bring Santa to them. On Thursday, Dec. 20, Santa came bearing books, T-shirts and lots of love for the children at WRMC, which will welcome a new pediatric unit in 2019 that includes a pediatric emergency department and intensive care unit to complement its Level III NICU.
