Coffs Health Campus gets a Christmas makeover

STAFF at Coffs Harbour Health Campus have gone all out to ensure patients and their families feel the festive spirit this holiday season.

The halls are decked with colourful displays, with staff dedicating personal time to ensure the hospital is a welcoming place for patients staying during Christmas.

The hospital's various departments have been decorated with different themes, ranging from Frozen to Australian Christmas to recycling.

Nurse Leanne Bacon said it was worth putting in the time to make Christmas more cheerful for patients and their visitors.

"The kids that come here are just absolutely drawn to the displays," she said.

"Even the parents stop to check them out."

It's not all fun and festivities however, with departments all competing for the highly sought-after Tinsel Trophy and a year of bragging rights.

While competition between displays was strong, it was the Mid North Coast Cancer Institute and intensive care unit that jointly won the prize for inpatient care, and Community Health that beat competitors to the trophy for non-inpatient care.
