Our Pet Therapy Program

It all began at Bronson Methodist Hospital in the 90s. Puppies in training to be service dogs were introduced to our pediatric department. And the program was a huge success. Now, this popular service has branched out to other units throughout Bronson Methodist and Bronson LakeView hospitals. We've also opened our program to non-service dogs.
