Press release


Let's admit it.... We all love our furbabies. Sometimes, the patients at Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center miss their dogs or cats more than they do some of their own family!!

 

Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center, led by our Board of Trustees, is proud to announce our their new Pet Visitation Policy.


EOMC realizes that the emotional and psychological needs of patients are as important as physical needs. All three must be maintained in balance for the true healing to take place.

 

Research shows that pet visits may significantly improve morale and possibly lower blood pressure levels in some people. EOMC is supportive of pet visitation as an ongoing commitment to quality health care for its patients.

 

**ALL PET VISITS ARE SCHEDULED, AND PETS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN PATIENT ROOMS. PETS WILL BE ALLOWED IN OUR ATRIUM AREA ONLY; NO OTHER AREAS OF THE HOSPITAL. (ALL ANIMALS MUST BE CURRENT ON THEIR VACCINATIONS, AND A FORM FROM THIER VETERINARIAN PRESENTED 24 HOURS BEFORE PLANNED VISIT.)

 

To obtain the REQUIRED Visiting Animal Health Form, please contact EOMC Infection PreventionIST at 918-635-3322 or email: dford@eomchospital.com
