Santa Makes Cyber-Stop to Shriners Hospitals for Children® — Los Angeles for the Holidays

What: Shriners Hospitals for Children, with the help of Dimension Data, will bring a live feed of the North Pole to our patients – using a video monitor and web-enabled camera. Santa visits with children through Dimension Data’s program to connect remotely via video. The hospital will transform the Auditorium into a Christmas Wonderland, which is where the video connection to the North Pole will stream. Much like children who are able to sit on Santa’s lap, patients will have the opportunity to pass along their wishes this holiday season in plenty of time for St. Nick to make his list and check it twice!

When: Wednesday, December 7, 2016 12:00 noon to 2:30 pm

Where: Shriners Hospitals for Children, 3160 Geneva St., Los Angeles, CA 90020, Auditorium

Details: Dimension Data, the global ICT services and solutions provider, is teaming up with Shriners Hospitals for Children to bring Santa Claus to patients through virtual video technology. The hospital recently started to use Telehealth visits to evaluate patients at an off-site location, similar to way they will visit with Santa in the “North Pole.”

Shriners Hospitals’ partnership with Dimension Data allows medical professionals to utilize innovative technology to better serve patients from around the world. Telemedicine programs assist the caregivers at Shriners Hospitals in providing expert care while also reducing travel expenses and saving time for families the hospitals serve.

Patients will be able to video chat with Santa to let him know which toys top their wish lists this year. In addition to our hospital, Santa will broadcast from the North Pole to two other Shriners Hospitals for Children locations in Chicago, and Philadelphia leveraging Cisco telepresence technology.
