Members of the Chaminade women’s soccer team made a special visit to Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children recently to visit with patients and learn more about the facility’s important work.
Team Coach Michelle Richardson, assistant Coach Conor Whittaker and eight members of the team made the visit as a way of giving back to the community.
They visited with four patients, spending some quality time with them in hospital’s playroom.
The Chaminade students played video games with the patients, helped a young chef-to-be cook up treats in the play kitchen, and got a lesson in Barbie doll hair braiding from another patient.
The coaches said that the group also got a special presentation and facility tour to help them better understand the cutting-edge services available at Kapiolani Medical Center.
The hospital offers a broad range of specialty care, including intensive care for infants and children, 24-hour emergency pediatric care, maternal-fetal care, and women’s health services.
