FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - People at Lutheran Hospital were getting in the holiday spirit Saturday.
Ornaments were hung on the Remembrance Tree. This is the third year for it.
People in the community could have the name of a loved one who has died written on an ornament.
Hospital leaders said it's a way to remember loved ones, especially around the holidays.
They also said it helps people get in touch with hospital staff who helped them while their loved one was there.
"When people are in the hospital they develop relationships with their providers and care givers," said Brian Bauer, CEO of Lutheran Hospital. "This is an opportunity to see people who were there for you and took care of your loved ones."
The event also featured some Christmas songs sung by local choirs. Santa even made a visit to children on the pediatric floor.
