Ahoy there. The Pirates are coming to Halifax Regional Hospital. Want a sneak preview? If so, join Halifax Regional’s Healing Arts Team for its “Third Thursday in the Lobby” on Thursday, April 18, at 3 p.m. to meet the cast of Halifax County Little Theatre’s soon to open production of “How I Became a Pirate.”
“We hope the community will be able to drop in for this fun event,” said Healing Arts Team member Sharon Brogden. “The cast will be in costume and will perform a little something from the show. You will also be able to register for a drawing for two complementary tickets to the show.”
Designed and orchestrated by Halifax Regional’s Healing Arts team, the purpose of the Third Thursday in the Lobby program is to provide monthly happenings in the lobby that can be enjoyed by visitors, patient’s families, the hospital staff, volunteers and the community.
The Healing Arts team is one of the Planetree teams designed to support and implement patient/person-centered care initiatives to personalize, humanize and demystify healthcare.
Halifax Regional has been an affiliate of Planetree since 2005 and has implemented a wide variety of programs designed to meet the needs and enhance the hospital stay for patients and their families including patient-directed visiting hours, pet visitation, open chart policy, the C.A.R.E. channel, the Care Partner Program, the Cookie Cutter program, Care for the Caregiver Kits, and most recently, Skype for patients and families.
