Lowell General Hospital and the Pheasant Lane Mall are teaming up to offer the annual Teddy Bear Clinic!

LOWELL, Mass. – The Teddy Bear Clinic is an opportunity for young children and their families to explore health care experiences and to learn about healthy habits. Children can bring a favorite stuffed animal or doll to care for as they visit each medical station and learn about topics such as visiting the Emergency Room, getting a cast, and overall health.

At the Teddy Bear Clinic, children are their teddy bear’s doctor. With the bear as the patient, children watch as their favorite friend is weighed and measured, and has their blood pressure taken. Teddy bears that need extra care can be sutured, bandaged, or even have an x-ray taken.

This clinic provides a positive learning opportunity for children to experience first-hand what might happen if they visit their doctor or the hospital emergency department. It demonstrates to children that the hospital and the doctor’s office are caring places where they can receive comfort when they are sick.

Holding the Teddy Bear Clinic at the Pheasant Lane Mall offers opportunities for children to learn about health and in a fun setting! So whether you are 2 or 92 grab your favorite teddy bear and join us anytime between 11:00am-2:00pm on Saturday, April 16th to join the festivities!  The Teddy Bear Clinic will be located on the first floor, right next to the play area in front of JCPenney.
