Santa visits families at UC San Diego's NICU

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Santa Claus paid a visit to UC San Diego Health System's neo-natal intensive care unit in Hillcrest Wednesday.

Families received a gift and had an opportunity to take a picture with Saint Nick. For families who can spend months in the NICU, Santa's annual visit helps them get into the holiday spirit during a challenging time.

"It's really fun to see the families smile and enjoy this little bit of normalcy in the middle of all the crazy in the ICU," NICU Nurse Manager Jan Hebert said.

The NICU specializes in the treatment of babies born prematurely, some weighing less than a pound or with health issues that require hospitalization.
