Each month, the hospital will hold one Zoom event for all YNHH employees celebrating their birthdays that month. The celebrations will begin at noon and last approximately 30 minutes. Everyone will receive a birthday card at home, which they can use as a voucher for a free lunch the day of the event, along with a mini birthday cake from the cafeteria. The card will also include instructions on joining the Zoom celebration.
