LVMC's theme for the week is "You Make a Difference."

Thursday, the hospital treated nurses to massages, a beer giveaway and other treats, including a nacho bar and non-alcoholic margaritas.

The massages were donated by the Santa Barbara Body Therapy Institute and Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. provided the beer.
