Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center recently welcomed two facility dogs to the Division of Child Life and Integrative Care. The golden retrievers, Drummer and Leica, provide physical and emotional support to patients at Cincinnati Children’s as part of the Animal Assisted Therapy program.
Drummer and Leica are specially bred and trained to work as therapy dogs in a hospital setting. Cincinnati Children’s received the dogs from Canine Assistants, a nonprofit in Milton, GA, that breeds and trains service dogs and has worked with five other pediatric hospitals across the country.
Unlike volunteer dogs that visit the medical center, the facility dogs will be at Cincinnati Children’s every day with their handlers in the Division of Child Life and Integrative Care and will have access to clinics and inpatient units.
