    Santa Claus wasn’t the only person scheduled to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. 

    In a hospital that never sleeps, babies need to be delivered, emergency treatment needs to be provided, food needs to be served, rooms need to be cleaned, and countless unseen services need to be provided to ensure everything runs smoothly, every day of the year.  

    On behalf of all the patients who are receiving care this week, MultiCare's Media & Web Team wanted to say thank you for your dedication.

    Scroll down for a gallery of photos of staff members.
