Beth Israel Hospital in NYC
NICU and Pediatric Intensive Care
Joanne Rutland, LCSW states: " Our patients and families have welcomed these bears with great warmth. they have expressed how meaningful this gift has been to them during times of crisis. We provide Hugs bears to our patients in Obstetrics, Neonatal Intensive care, Pediatric Intensive care, and Ambulatory Pediatrics. In addition to the trauma of severe illness or injury, we provide bears to parents and siblings who have suffered a loss during pregnancy. These bears represent a gift of love that the patients find invaluable.
Thank you for your continued support."
