Our animal friends

We know that nature has a powerful effect on healing. That’s just one reason why we brought nature’s animals inside. Our animal friends play a key role throughout the new main hospital. Each patient level features a unique, hand-carved animal friend designed to entertain patients and provide a positive distraction. The animal friends you’ll find in our new main hospital were chosen because of their presence right here in Ohio.
