Facility Dogs

Facility Dogs are available at The Queen’s Health Systems to bring cheer and help patients cope with illnesses through healing.

Scientific research has shown that a patient's interaction with an animal can provide positive physical and emotional benefits. It can reduce stress levels and invoke a sense of well-being.

The Facility Dogs Program acts as a catalyst to motivate patients to help themselves. A patient will happily take a dog for a walk or throw a ball to play fetch, forgetting the pain for a little while and incrementally improve their health so they may return home.

Benefits of this type of animal-assisted therapy include motivating patients to:

  • Forget their discomfort or pain
  • Interact more with others
  • Improve their mood
  • Improve their interactions with family and staff
  • Do things that may be a struggle, such as eating, taking medication or waiting
  • Get up, move, and walk
  • Participate in therapy (physical, occupational and speech)

Our Facility Dogs and owners are trained and certified. The dogs brighten the day for just about everyone including patients, visitors and staff alike.

Queen's works with Assistance Dogs of Hawaii, a nonprofit organization that provides children and adults with disabilities and hospitals with professionally trained dogs that ensures both the animal and handler have successfully completed pet therapy training.

Queen's also employs comfort pets through Volunteer Services and is equipped with a K-9 Security Dog unit specifically at The Queen's Medical Center - West Oahu campus.
