Just What the Doctor Ordered!

Last updated: Jun 12, 2019


In April, WABC-TV traffic anchor and Creature Comfort Pet Therapy volunteer Heather O’Rourke and her dog Rocco visited patients at our Florham Park Cancer Center to highlight the on-site pet therapy program, which is funded by the Summit Medical Group Foundation (SMGF) as part of their Comfort Project to support the courage, confidence and emotional well-being of patients fighting cancer and their families. Known as “little therapists”, the pets of Creature Comfort Pet Therapy and their owners are a welcome distraction—one that provides comfort and joy to patients during each visit.

To date, SMGF has funded over 80 hours of care, comfort, and compassion through pet therapy!
