Santa visits Children’s Hospital of Georgia

A special guest paid a visit to hospitalized children Christmas Day.

“Our patients who will be in the Children’s Hospital of Georgia on Christmas Day won’t be able to spend the holiday at home with friends and family. The hospital staff want to make sure they’re able to receive some gifts and holiday spirit, and what better way than a visit from Saint Nick,” according to a news release from Augusta University Health.
