Bringing magic moments

Magic the dog dispenses joy and comfort to everyone at the Santa Rosa Medical Center.

A therapy dog named Magic was originally brought to the medical center to comfort caregivers during the pandemic. But soon no one could resist the canine described as patient, hard-working, and really good at figuring out what people need. By now Magic has shared cuddles with hundreds of staff members and physicians, and also patients and their families.

Research shows that therapy dogs really do bring health benefits, from lowering blood pressure to helping anxious children get their shots. As Meghann Brock, director of Strategic Initiatives and Magic’s handler, said, “You can’t have a bad day when you’re petting a fluffy Golden Retriever.”
