Teddy Bear Hospital offers stuffed-animal care, injury prevention for kids
Kids can receive TLC for their favorite stuffed animals or dolls from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 22 at the second annual Teddy Bear Hospital at Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland.

Parents and children alike will be able to learn about being healthy, staying safe and preventing injuries. Emergency room doctors, nurses and technicians will be on hand to perform mock procedures on the stuffed critters and dolls.

“This gives kids a chance to learn about hospitals in a fun atmosphere,” said Ramona Perkins, clinical educator for the emergency department at MCR. “We had a great turnout last year and are looking forward to another great Teddy Bear Hospital.”

The day will include games along with booths and activities provided by first responders from Loveland Fire Department, Loveland Police Services, Thompson Valley EMS, Poudre Valley Health System EMS, PVHS Healthy Kids Club, PVHS Pet Therapy dogs, as well as a visit from a North Colorado Med Evac helicopter.

The free, public event includes refreshments and will be held at the emergency department ambulance entrance area on MCR’s east side. Signage will be posted. For questions about this event please call 970.624.1600.

For more information, contact Kevin Darst, 970.624.1211.
