— -- Lucky patients at Boston’s Tufts Medical Center Saturday were greeted by some special visitors dressed in jump suits and carrying special ‘Ghostbusting’ gear.

ABC affiliate WCVB reports that the cast of the new “Ghostbusters” reboot –- Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones -- stopped by the hospital in their costumes to visit patients.

The hospital thanked the upcoming film’s stars in a Tweet Saturday:

Brooke Hynes, the hospital’s vice president of public affairs and communications, said that the cast were a delight. “They were so kind to all the kids and their parents. They took their time in each room visiting children as young as a few months to teens. We cannot thank them enough for the happiness and excitement they created.”

The reboot, which is being directed by Paul Feig, had been filming in Boston.
