Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center will host a “Teddy Bear
Tour” on Sunday, Sept. 9,
from 1-3 p.m. at the hospital. This event will give children a behind-the-scenes
look at the hospital’s Surgical Services Department and help allay
fears about undergoing a surgical procedure.
Kids are encouraged to bring a teddy bear, stuffed animal or doll, which
will become their “patient” in the Surgery Department. They’ll
take their patient through an entire surgery stay and will even get to
test out some of the equipment. Parents or guardians are encouraged to
participate in the tour with their child.
Each child will receive a goody bag after their tour is complete. Food
and beverages will be provided. This event is free and open to the public.
For more information, call 719-530-2217.
