Going to the hospital can be scary for anyone...especially kids. To make that experience less frightening, Parker Adventist Hospital offers free tours of the hospital geared to kids between the ages of four and seven. The tour features the lovable Curious George and begins with the reading of the classic book, Curious George Goes to the Hospital with a four-foot plush George joining the kids.
Children are able to dress up in surgical gowns, caps, shoes and masks. They also get to dress Curious George in hospital surgical bandages and assist in admitting him to the hospital. The tour group, with George in tow, may even visit some of the departments that George visited when he went to the hospital, including emergency registration, imaging, surgery and a patient recovery room. The children are able to touch and explore hospital equipment and sometimes even visit the helicopter pad.
Curious George Goes to the Hospital tours are ideal for school, scout or other children's groups, children facing personal or family member's hospitalization and members of the general public.
Prior Registration is required for all hospital tours!
