Hospital pet therapy program

    To help patients with their healing process, St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center recently launched a therapy pet program.
    Working with  Pet Partners of Syracuse, St. Joseph’s Hospital will have four separate animal/handler teams that will visit in two-hour blocks, first in the main lobby and waiting areas and later in patient care areas, as appropriate.
   In addition to offering therapy pets, St. Joseph’s provides other complementary therapies to hospitalized patients, including therapeutic music, adding natural lighting where appropriate and implementing noise reduction efforts on the patient units.
