On an otherwise typical Friday morning Dec. 16 at Mercy Hospital in Portland, patients, visitors, and staff were surprised by the sounds of a harp being played in the lobby of the State Street campus by Dr. Patrice Lockhart, a psychiatrist who is medical director of New England Eating Disorders Program – and a professional harpist.

Hospital staff react to the performance by Dr. Lockhart. “I always love giving the gift of music during the Christmas holidays,” Lockhart said. “This season, I am particularly grateful to my friends and colleagues at Mercy for supporting my patients with love and generosity.” (Dan D’Ippolito / For The Forecaster)
