CORAL SPRINGS, FL – The nursing staff at Broward Health Coral Springs serenaded Wednesday a 101-year-old female patient on her birthday.

Lying in bed with a tray of food in front of her, Selvanayaki Kanagasabai smiled and clapped as nurses came into her room singing “happy birthday” and holding balloons. Her son joined the brief celebration through a video service.

The moment, captured on video, was provided by the hospital, which offered well-wishes to Kanagasabai: “Our medical team wishes the patient many more years filled with good health.”
