On Saturday, August 6th the 2022 Water Lantern Festival was held at Mount Trashmore in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Thousands of people came together to experience unity in the community that was moving, yet uplifting. People channeled their creative side working effortlessly to design water lanterns that were meaningful to them. Many people listed their dreams and aspirations whiles others took time to commemorate the loss of a loved one. Some participants were brave enough to get up on stage and share their personal stories. As night fell, everyone headed to the lake to release their lanterns which is symbolic to releasing peace, hope and happiness. For years Patient First has aided in healing the community through the services provided at our medical centers. We were proud to support an event that brought healing and community connection outside of the healthcare setting. Although the event just concluded, we are already looking forward to next year.
