Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) hosted a Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on
Monday, Dec. 9 in the north entrance of the hospital. “A Christmas
tree stands as a beacon of light, symbolizing hope,” said President
and CEO Tom Keller.
Mike Parrott, Chaplain Coordinator, shared the Christmas story and led
guests in prayer. One of OMC’s longest standings volunteers, Norval
Merrick had the honor of lighting the tree. Attendees enjoyed cookies
and hot cocoa with entertainment provided by Mr. and Mrs. Marty Elmore,
along with the opportunity to personalize ornaments for the tree honoring
loved ones who received care at OMC.
