See what Patient First is doing in the community.

We love being part of Bethlehem's Christkindlmarkt each year, and every year it seems to get bigger and better, if that is even possible. We were on site on Saturday, November 18 for Opening Weekend and the kickoff of the event's 31st anniversary.

The staff who puts this enormous event together is second to none, and it is always a pleasure to work with them. A host of volunteers are on site to ensure everyone has an amazing experience.

Although temperatures are chilly this time of year, we don't mind, since we always enjoy a steady flow of foot traffic while we are there from morning until night. This year we had many great conversations with folks who have visited our Lehigh Valley centers, plus others throughout eastern Pennsylvania, central Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. It was great to hear all of their positive comments about Patient First. We were particularly delighted to talk with a bus load of folks who traveled to the event from New Jersey, many of whom had visited our South Jersey centers, and had positive experiences with our providers and staff there.

Christkindlmarkt is a "must attend" even that continues weekends until Christmas. It features lots of holiday attractions like ice carving, decorations of all sorts, holiday trees and jumbo ornaments and of course, lots of shopping for thousands of gift items.

Huge tents are set up on campus to showcase traditional artisans and vendors.

A nice surprise for us this year was a visit from Miss Pennsylvania Miranda Moore, who will compete for the title of Miss America in January 2024 in Florida.

The event has been named one of the top holiday markets in the world by Travel + Leisure, and one of the top holiday markets in North America by USA TODAY. We look forward to returning again in 2024!
