MERCY MISSION BEAR HOSPITAL AND ADOPTION AGENCY, LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
January 19, 2013, 10am, was a great day in Los Angeles county as the "Groundbreaking Ceremony" took place for the temporary Mercy Mission Bear Hospital and Adoption Agency. The pre-fabricated "cottage" hospital was completed in record breaking time; within three days; and all present at the dedication services were overjoyed at the beauty of the cottage!
During the fall of 2015, our cottage hospital will be moved from it's temporary site to our new hospital building, planned for dedication summer 2015. The long anticipated site will share several stories of space with department units such as a Teddy Bear Adoption Agency; Hospital "surgical" Teddy Bear Repair Department;Teddy Bear Chapel of Prayer; Teddy Bear Art Gallery and Museum; the famous TEDDY BEAR MAUSOLEUM OF THE GOLDEN WEST for Teddy Bears beyond repair; a children's "Stay and Play Station; Healing Gardens with Neptune Fountains;
Hospital Gift Shop; Hospital Adult Daycare Walk In-Walk Out Center for fun and new friends; and more!
