COVID-19 Vaccine Update: We are now offering walk-in appointments at the Wellness & Walk-In Care Center at the Garden State Plaza for those ages 12 and older who live, work, or go to school in NJ. We are also offering walk-ins at our Paramus Vaccination Center, but appointments are highly encouraged.
Teddy Bear Clinic Update
Out of an abundance of caution, the Teddy Bear Clinic will not be taking place in 2020. We'll miss seeing everyone and look forward to next year's event!
Every fall, The Valley Hospital's Teddy Bear Clinic invites children to bring their teddy bears or other stuffed animals to the hospital for a checkup! Children ages 2 to 10 love learning and playing with Valley doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers.
Each "checkup" takes 30-45 minutes and features interactive stations for pediatric emergency care, cardiac care, diagnostic imaging, respiratory care and more, with both real and pretend medical equipment. Kids even get to tour a Valley ambulance and spend time with our four-legged pet volunteers!
