Teddy Bear Hospital offers fun for kids, stuffed pals in Loveland


WHAT: The fifth annual Teddy Bear Hospital, a fun way for children to experience a hospital setting without the fear factor of being involved in an actual emergency.

WHEN: 8 a.m. to noon June 1.

WHERE: Medical Center of the Rockies, 2500 Rocky Mountain Ave., Loveland.

COST: Free.


Kids can get a little TLC for their favorite stuffed animals or dolls from 8 a.m.-noon June 1 at the fifth annual Teddy Bear Hospital event 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 at the event. Emergency room doctors, nurses and technicians will be on hand to perform mock procedures on the stuffed critters and dolls.

“The Teddy Bear Hospital gives children a chance to experience and see the emergency department without the fear factor of being involved in a real emergency situation. They also get to see how compassionate we are when we care for their teddy bears and dolls,” said Ramona Perkins, a staff nurse in the emergency department at MCR. “Plus, it allows the emergency staff to give back to the community, which we love.”

The first 100 children will receive free mini teddy bears, and all parents can register to win a free Mini iPad.

The free event will include games along with booths and activities provided by the following agencies and organizations:

  • Loveland Fire Department
  • Healthy Kids Club
  • MCR Therapy dogs
  • Air Link
  • UCHealth EMS
  • Thompson Valley EMS

The event includes refreshments and will be held at a new location on the west side of the hospital, which is located at 2500 Rocky Mountain Ave., northwest of the intersection of Interstate 25 and U.S. 34. Signs will guide visitors to the location.

For more information about the event or to see photos from previous Teddy Bear Hospital events sponsored by MCR, go to or call 970.624.1211.
