Cincinnati Children's Family Pet Center Opens
With much excitement Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center opened the new Pet Visiting Center, one of the first of its kind, on the hospital's main campus. The ribbon cutting ceremony welcomed members of the CancerFree KIDS and Impact 100 organizations, as well as patient families and furry friends.
The new facility will allow patients who are spending a long period of time in the hospital to be reunited with their own pets. The philosophy behind the center is that time spent with a pet can be very therapeutic and assist in the child's healing process.
