Good Samaritan Medical Center Teddy Bear Clinic

Thank you Good Samaritan Medical Center

Even though the carefree days of summer feel long ago, we would like to give a big shout out to our 2018 Summer Extravaganza presenting sponsor Good Samaritan Medical Center for making this summer awesome!  Good Samaritan’s generous partnership allowed us to deliver another summer season of super fun and awesome educational programs!

“At the Museum we are always on the lookout for partners who are driven by opportunities to enrich the community and explore how we can work together to increase the hands-on educational programs the Museum provides,” says Caitlin McGillicuddy, Museum Executive Director.  “In Good Samaritan Medical Center, we hit the jackpot!”

Already this summer their team welcomed budding medical professionals at our Teddy Bear Clinic where visitors learned to provide first aid to their stuffed friends. Not only was this educational, it also helps kids feel more confident and calm when they get their own boo boos.

Next up, Good Samaritan sent over their Infection Control Gurus and Museum visitors got the chance to be bacteria detectives. Using glow germs, visitors learned how easily germs can spread and participated in a hand-washing challenge that left grown-ups speechless and looking for tips on how to improve their OWN hand washing. Everyone left feeling much more prepared for cold and flu season this year!


Then on August 22nd, Good Samaritan brought the da Vinci Surgical Robot to the Museum for a one-of-a- kind experience. Participants learned all about how robots are assisting in surgeries, got to talk with the people who make the robots and the doctors who use them. Then every one got the opportunity to actually control the robot themselves!

Join us in extending an enormous thank you to everyone at Good Samaritan Medical Center for their generous support and commitment partnering with us to inspire a life-long love of learning through play and exploration for all.
