Lafayette, Colorado – WOW! Children’s Museum (World of Wonder) is pleased to announce the opening of the remodeled Colorado Kids Clinic Exhibit generously sponsored by SCL Health Good Samaritan Medical Center and Camp Little Tooth. At this practical life exhibit, young visitors are able to explore the medical field through play and take on the role of health care provider or patient. Just like a real clinic, this highly interactive exhibit is fully equipped with an exam table, medical tools, hand washing station, and reception area. The exhibit also features hands-on stations with lessons about anatomy, sugary drinks, and dental health.
Join us for the Colorado Kids Clinic Exhibit ribbon cutting ceremony with sponsor Good Samaritan Medical Center on Wednesday, February 28th at 9:00am.
“We are thrilled to partner with local healthcare provider, Good Samaritan Medical Center to help children learn about health and wellness through play. While taking on the role of doctor, nutritionist or patient, we hope our young visitors will learn how to stay healthy and become more comfortable with visiting the doctor’s office,” said Jennifer Hinderliter, Executive Director, WOW! Children’s Museum.
“Good Samaritan Medical Center was founded with the vision of becoming an integral part of our community, and partnerships with key local organizations, like the WOW! Children’s Museum, are a big part of doing just that,” said Jen Alderfer, President, Good Samaritan Medical Center. “Our support of the Colorado Kids Clinic exhibit at the museum will help to foster creativity and imagination in local youth while also encouraging the importance of good health and wellness.”
