IMG_0095SACRAMENTO – Dozens of Sutter Children’s Center, Sacramento patients and siblings of NICU patients paraded the lobby and breezeways at the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center on Monday to celebrate Halloween.

Employees from Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento set up trick or treat stations and carnival games on the first and second floors of the hospital, allowing children to collect non-food treats for the holiday.

This was the second year for the event and it was an even bigger success this year than in its debut in 2015.

“I am truly thankful for my colleagues throughout the hospital for making this event so special for the children in our hospital,” said Amy Medovoy, child life coordinator, Sutter Children’s Center, Sacramento. “Halloween is a children’s holiday and we were able to go all out this year thanks to everyone’s partnership.”

This year, Sutter Health conducted a costume drive where employees throughout the greater Sacramento area donated new costumes for the children to wear to the trick or treat event. The Child Life staff received 50 costumes.

Dinger, the Sacramento River Cats mascot, and Quakals from Quick Quack Car Wash, were on hand to give out treats, take pictures and put big smiles on the faces of the children and their families who participated.

Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento’s Child Life staff handed out treats to those children who were not able to leave their rooms and participate in the trick or treat event.

“This event gets bigger and better every year thanks to the work that our entire Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento staff puts into it,” said Mike Cohill, interim CEO, Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento. “This is the epitome of putting patients first!”
