Video: Flyers bring holiday cheer to Virtua
The Philadelphia Flyers delivered holiday cheer to patients at Virtua Voorhees on December 16. They spent the afternoon delivering goodie bags to young patients in the pediatrics unit and visiting with Virtua's tiniest patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
"We are very appreciative that the team would take time to visit our patients," says Richard Miller, Virtua CEO. "The players posed for pictures, signed autographs and spent time talking with each young patient and their parents. They are a great group of young men and it's one more reason why Virtua is proud to partner with the Flyers organization."
Virtua is the Official Orthopaedic Provider of the Philadelphia Flyers and is the proud sponsor of the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zones in Voorhees and Pennsauken.
