Teddy Bear Event at Children's Hospital of Iowa Jan. 12

Patients in the Children's Hospital of Iowa will be stuffing their own Teddy bears on Saturday, Jan. 12, thanks to the generosity of the Teddy Bear Express at the Coral Ridge Mall.

Employees of the Teddy Bear Express will bring materials to the playroom on the third level of the John Colloton Pavilion from 1:30 to 3 p.m. this coming Saturday. The children will choose a Teddy bear and then stuff it themselves.

The Children's Hospital of Iowa is the state's longest-serving children's hospital. The Children's Hospital of Iowa inpatient areas serve more than 5,000 families a year, providing the full spectrum of care ranging from primary care needs to the most advanced specialized services.

To reach the event location, take either elevator F or H to the third level of the John Colloton Pavilion and proceed to the pediatric inpatient unit. For assistance in covering this special event, please contact Tom More at (319) 356-3945.
