Doctors Medical Center Introduces New Certified Facility DogSep 2, 2020
Doctors Medical Center recently introduced a new, four-legged team member to the community.
Bria is a certified facility dog with Canine Companions for Independence and she will be making her way around the hospital visiting patients, visitors and employees with Chaplain Jeremy Brown. She isn’t full-time at the hospital just yet, due to COVID-19, but the hospital is excited to have her.
Canine Companions is a nonprofit that provides assistance dogs and ongoing support, free of charge.
It’s well-known and scientifically proven that interaction with a gentle, friendly dog can have significant benefits.
