At The Heart Hospital, our happy, smiling, expertly trained resident facility dogs have proven to be essential in the healing of hearts both physically and emotionally. Our resident facility dogs are professionally trained and partner with a certified facilitator licensed to provide patient care in The Heart Hospital. They are on call 24-7 and work alongside our experts in:
- Cardiac rehabilitation
- Child life specialists
- Comprehensive care management
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Speech therapy
Our team has created a program to make facility dogs a key component of our mission to provide comprehensive as well as state-of-the-art cardiac care. Their services are available free of charge.
Inpatients can request visits or have their care teams consider integrating care by asking their physicians or scanning the QR code available in the hospital.
