Teddy Bear Hospital

At various community events during the year, Nyack Hospital invites children to bring a stuffed animal for a check-up at our Teddy Bear Hospital! 

Visiting the Emergency Department can be intimidating, and the Teddy Bear Hospital’s goal is to familiarize children with what happens in an actual emergency department.  Children have the opportunity to have their stuffed animal examined by medical personnel, see how x-rays are taken, become familiar with bandages and other equipment used in the emergency department, view the inside of an ambulance and, of course, ask questions. 

To find out when the Teddy Bear Hospital will be available, please call 845.348.2773.
