  • Snow in July at Sinai! Employees got a sweet treat to kick off summer when two #snowball trucks rolled into #SinaiHospital earlier this week, serving up more than 1,800 snowballs! Check out our photo album. So what's Sinai's favorite flavor? Most people chose to mix their flavors while many chose classics like egg custard, cherry and pina colada. Some employees even took a "snowball selfie" with their favorite. What about you? Share your favorite flavor on your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) with the hashtag #LifeBridgeHealth. #Baltimore
