HRRMC Surgery Department offers "Teddy Bear Tour"

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.
