by amandarosephotography

Recently, Griffin Hospital in Derby had a huge celebration to honor their 100th year of service. This event was open to the public and provided Griffin the chance to say “Thank You” to the people in the community that have been loyal to them for all of these years. I was so excited when I was asked to come and capture the day’s activities. Here are a few of my favorites.

Of course they had tons of cake and ice cream for everyone

Griffin provided the public with behind-the-scenes tours of their new emergency room and new operating rooms. It’s not so scary when your Dr. is a stuffed bear!IMG_9850 copyIMG_9847 copy


Griffin Hostpital is also a big advocate of music therapy. These were some of the great performers throughout the hallways.
