Pet Therapy at Ogden Regional Medical Center was Launched in 2011- To provide healing, hope, comfort and satisfaction to our patients and guests. An animal visit to a hospitalized patient can lift spirits, lower blood pressure, induce relaxation, reduce stress, decrease loneliness and bring a bit of diversion and enrichment to a hospital stay. They work only with accredited Pet Therapy providers. Each owner/pet team meets stringent membership, behavior and grooming requirements.
Currently they have 14 pet and owner teams that visit our patients and staff four days per week. Here’s your chance to find out what we have learned about how this effects those in our hospital and meet a few members of our team.
