Pets and Patients: Rx For Health


We are a 100% volunteer organization. We maintain a not-for-profit, tax exempt status through our affiliation with the hospital's Auxiliary.

Our main goal is to provide a healing moment to hospitalized patients and a sense of increased well being to all we visit.

We are part of the Valley View Hospital's Planetree initiative and as such, support its mission statement. We make visits to the acute care department.

A team consists of the registered handler and animal. At present we are not using animals other than dogs. Handlers are usually, but not necessarily, its owner.

Approved written procedures and guidelines are provided as the framework for a visit.

The Family Rooms - Giving families the room to make the most important decisions in life
New for 2008, the Valley View Hospital Foundation will raise money to help fund the family rooms in the new patient care area. In addition to the two family rooms are a dining room with a kitchen.

The Planetree philosophy at V.V.H. recognizes that caring for the families helps everyone care more for the patients.
