Keiki Patients Enjoy Halloween Fun at Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center Trick-Or-Treat Event

HONOLULU — Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center held its annual trick-or-treat event for the hospital’s youngest patients today, celebrating Halloween with festive costumes, decorations and healthy treats. Eight pediatric patients ranging in age from toddlers to teens traveled through nearly every floor of the facility, showing off their costumes in exchange for stickers, coloring books and healthy snacks from physicians and staff.

Dressed as superheroes and movie characters, keiki visited General Surgery, Cardiology, Food & Nutrition and other departments to take in the hospital’s Halloween decorations and meet physicians and staff in costume. Five young patients who were unable to leave the pediatrics floor received a special delivery of Halloween treats delivered to their rooms by staff members.

“Our annual Halloween trick-or-treat event is a favorite for physicians, staff and parents, because it allows our young patients to celebrate the holidays without leaving the hospital,” said Kathryn Martin, RN, manager of pediatrics at Moanalua Medical Center. “We look forward to brightening the spirits of all our keiki with healthy treats and festive Halloween fun.”
