Medical City Plano will host a free teddy bear clinic designed to alleviate children’s’ anxieties about going to the hospital or a doctor’s office. As a pretend “patient,” the child’s favorite bear or doll undergoes a thorough physical exam at the hands of medical care providers using real equipment. Children get to use their imaginations in describing their bears’ “injuries” or “illnesses,” and experience the hospital in an educational, comfortable and fun environment.
“Our effort to familiarize children with procedures they could potentially encounter during an emergency room visit is one additional way we are able serve our community and its families,” said Charles Gressle, CEO of Medical City Plano.
The free Teddy Bear Clinic will be held on Sunday, April 24, 2016 from 1:30 pm-3:30 pm at our 24/7 Emergency Care location, 3670 Hwy 121 Plano, TX 75025. Learn more or register for the Teddy Bear Clinic today. No advanced registration is necessary to attend this event.
