Mesquite Pediatrics adds twist to holiday gift exchange

Local pediatricians Drs. Mary Cochran, Jeff Couchman and Susan McMahon along with their staff at Mesquite Pediatrics wanted to have a fun holiday party while supporting kids who find themselves patients at the hospital. Everyone at the office drew names. Then, each person had to find a gift that their chosen person would have wanted if still a child.

During their holiday party, they all opened their gifts. Staff members were delighted. In a nod to his “peg” leg (it’s in a cast), Dr. Couchman received a pirate Lego set. Then, in a heartwarming twist to the old gift exchange, the unopened toys were donated as part of the toy drive for TMC’s Andrea’s Closet.

Congratulations to all the folks at Mesquite Pediatrics for such a creative way to have fun and share in the spirit of the season!
