Baptist Children's Hospital in Miami offered plastic and reconstructive surgery to 13 children as part of its ninth annual Day of Smiles program. Through the program, which has helped 97 patients since 1999, the hospital pays the bills for the procedures and surgeons and other employees donate their time. "We just love this stuff. It's fun," said Dr. Joel Levin, chief of plastic surgery at Baptist Hospital. "The surgery is life-changing. You get immediate gratification."
