Patients of Wood County Hospital over Christmas were treated to their own holiday tree.
Terrie Newman, who has worked at the hospital for nine years and is an RN in the second floor east unit, supplied 19 miniature Christmas trees to patients on the second floor and in ICU.
She paid for all supplies - wire coat hangers, garland and battery power lights - on her own and delivered them with help from her husband, Chuck.
Last year Newman and her mother came up with the holiday craft idea to keep the grandkids busy at home, and she thought it would be a great idea to make the trees for patients at the hospital.
"I just thought it would be nice," she said. "Everyone is down because they can't go home to their own tree."
At first, she said, patients were confused until she explained who she was.
"They thought it was just wonderful."
She guessed it takes about one hour to make a tree and has already purchased supplies for next year.
