South Bay Hospital Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day

South Bay Hospital Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day

Dozens of staff children attended National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day at South Bay Hospital recently. This annual event is an educational program in the United States and Canada where parents take their children to work with them for one day.

The children toured various departments in the hospital including Food & Nutrition, Laboratory, Materials Management, Plant Operations, Surgery, ED, Diagnostic Imaging, Outpatient Surgery, Pharmacy, Progressive Care Unit, Med/Surgery Unit, Telemetry Unit and Rehabilitation to learn about what their parents do every day in a healthcare environment.

Team members also helped lead them through some hands-on activities to focus their energy on learning tasks that help run a hospital and take care of patients. For more information about South Bay Hospital, please call 813-634-0496 or visit SouthBayHospital.com.
