Phlebotomist Breaks Into Ballet Performance In The Middle Of The Hospital


With all that’s going on in the world, people could use a little more beauty, a reason to smile, a glimmer of hope – and that’s what one hospital employee offered to everyone in the lobby of the University of Utah Health hospital.

Many hospitals are full of patients, but suffering from a lack of staff. The healthcare workers that do show up are often burnt out and tired from the past year and a half.

Despite that, many show up and give it their all anyway, and that’s what phlebotomist Teva Martinson did.

On August 31, 2021, Martinson combined his hospital career and his passion for ballet into one beautiful moment when he performed to Ballade Pour Adeline being played on the lobby piano.
