Vibra Hospital in Folsom, formerly known as Kindred Hospital before Sept. 1, is holding a gingerbread house contest among its employees with the general public welcome to vote. Thirteen departments spanning nursing, respiratory, rehab, the OR, administration and more had four days to create their unique confectionary visions.  Each department received the same basic gingerbread house and was told the sky’s the limit except everything must be edible.

An Elvis “Blue Christmas” themed house complete with background music is a frontrunner, as is a Triscuit-roofed tropical island straw hut. Snow takes many forms among the houses, ranging from white cotton candy to coconut.

Last year administration team members won bragging rights. With their pebbled candy path and Rolo-lined campfire with pretzel logs, they have a good chance of first place again.

“It’s a fun team-building activity during the holidays and it makes the lobby smell great,” said Vibra medical staff coordinator Sue Holsopple. “It also gets patients and their families excited.”

Walk-in voting is open to the public between noon and 3 p.m. until the end of the month.

Vibra Hospital, 330 Montrose Drive in Folsom,  is a long-term acute care facility for patients 18 and older. They are located at 330 Montrose Drive. For more information call (916) 351-9151.
