Doylestown Health’s Animal-Assisted Activity Program
Animal-assisted activity is a service where trained and certified therapy teams consisting of a dog and handler visit patients and family members in the hospital. Animal-assisted activity can bring comfort and happiness to patients as they heal.
Therapy dogs enhance the patient experience at Doylestown Health, providing welcome companionship and comfort for patients and their families. Our therapy dogs are specially trained animals who have earned credentials from a therapy organization that confirms their temperament and ability to function effectively in a hospital setting.
