The hospital staff were just going about their daily business when the dogs walked through the front door. What’s more, a female visitor who had heard a lot of bad things about the pit bull breed was in the lobby that day, and so the arrival of the animals made her heart begin to race. In fact, she found herself too scared to move – and the dogs were coming closer.
The hospital in question was St. Luke’s Anderson Campus (SLAC), a branch of the university health network in Pennsylvania. The non-profit operation has been active since its founding way back in 1872, and it now has facilities across New Jersey as well.
And St. Luke’s is proud of its patient care, too. “[Our mission] is an unwavering commitment to excellence as we care for the sick and injured,” reads its Facebook page. Furthermore, the organization also promises to “improve access to care in the communities.”
