Bunnies Bring Holiday Fun to Pediatric Patients

Joined by the New York City Fire Department, the furry creatures put on a festive meet-and-greet at NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital.

Carrots must have been on the menu when two Easter bunnies paid a surprise visit to patients at NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, April 16.

Assisted by the New York City Fire Department (FDNY), one of the bunnies and Dr. James Gallagher, director of the William Randolph Hearst Burn Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, climbed a firetruck’s tower ladder so they could wave to patients and visitors who had gathered inside the hospital.

Afterward, both bunnies and the firefighters went inside the hospital to sing songs and distribute goodies on the pediatric floor of the Burn Center.

Thank you to the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation for over 30 years of helping bring holiday cheer to our young patients.

Happy spring from NewYork-Presbyterian!
