Santa chats Children's Hospital patients from the North Poll

Santa Claus visited patients at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, without ever leaving the North Poll.
Kids not well enough to leave their hospital rooms got to chat with Santa on Thursday, through a video monitor and web camera.
The 'Santa Connection Program' enables children to remotely talk to Santa, provided by Cisco's video technologies.

CLIFTON, OH (FOX19) - Officials at the Medical Center said children who are hospitalized during the holidays often don't get a chance to tell Santa what they're wishing for in-person.

This was the third year of Cisco System's Santa Connection Project.

With the program, Santa will chat with children at 30 different hospitals throughout the United States.
