Pediatrics patients at Royal University Hospital (RUH) didn’t miss out on trick or treating this year, even though they were in hospital over Halloween.


This little guy was dressed as Dr. Miller, one of RUH’s fantastic pediatrics physicians.

Staff and physicians at RUH set up trick or treating stations all around the main floor mall at RUH so that the youngsters, who were dressed in costumes, could still get a taste of Halloween. They handed out packages of fun – things like pencils, crayons, paper pads and stickers.theo5amazingstaff10_thebighaul amazingstaff9 amazingstaff8 amazingstaff7 amazingstaff6 amazingstaff5 amazingstaff4 amazingstaff3 Amazingstaff2 Amazing-Staff1

As the “treaters” made their way past each station, members of the pediatric care team gathered remaining packages so they could make a special delivery to all those children and teenagers who weren’t able to leave their hospital room. A special thank-you to all those who set up the stations and took their time to create their ‘treats’ for the children and teenagers and to our care teams who brought the children around.

This year’s annual tradition was a resounding success as could be seen by the smiles on everyone’s face. Your generosity was greatly appreciated!
