Meet Willow, A South Shore Health Therapy Dog

Regina Ward can't leave any of South Shore Health's locations in a timely fashion, and none of that seems to bother her one bit.

Ward, who goes by “Reggie", visits South Shore Hospital with her therapy dog, Willow, several times a month. Willow, a beautiful golden retriever, makes friends with everybody wherever he goes, whether it's patients, visitors, doctors, nurses, and other colleagues.

“Willow was born like this, to do this," Ward says. “There are other dogs that you have to train, but Willow had the instinct from a very young age."

Learn more about Willow in the video below.
