And the award goes to… Christmas Decorating Competition winners announced!

Christmas spirit is back in full swing at Northern Health! The Annual Christmas Decorating Competition is on again in 2022, after a challenging two years. Staff were encouraged to deck Northern Health’s halls with COVID Safe cheer, get creative and have fun, and they did!

We received over 30 entries from the creative minds of Northern Health, featuring The Polar Express, Dreaming of White Christmas, the Grinch, Michael Bublé and Mariah Carrey singing duet, as well as some hardworking (and cheeky) Elves, to name just a few.

The festive decorations have brought much joy and delight to our staff, patients, visitors and their families.

Northern Health judges, team of Executives, had a very difficult decision to make to choose the winners in this year’s Christmas Decorating Competition. They all agreed that staff have shown incredible skill, craftmanship and impressive creative talent!

  • First prize – $1,000: Ward 1, Bundoora Centre
