The Pet Therapy program at BMC offers patients at the Medical Center the opportunity to have visits by certified dogs and other pets, if qualified by the Pet Partners program. Numerous studies have shown that pets can have a therapeutic benefit, including lowering blood pressure and reducing stress. If you or a patient that you know would like a visit, please leave a message on the number shown below with the patients first name only, room and bed number and we will contact the Pet Partner that is visiting on that day. Please note, we do not have Pet Partners visiting every day, but will do our best to have a visit arranged a soon as possible.
