EGAN Pediatrics Makes Special Trip to Audubon Zoo
The care team at EGAN Pediatrics recently made a very special trip to the Audubon Zoo with a group of special needs children. By all accounts, it was an enjoyable day for staff, the children and their respective families alike.
For many making the trip, this was their very first-ever visit to the zoo.
For others such as assistant administrator Peter Egan Jr., it was his first visit in nearly 20 years. “It’s even more amazing than I remember it being,” an enthusiastic Egan stated.
The group arrived around 10 am. They split up into groups before meeting back up for lunch in the early afternoon. Some stayed until well into the late afternoon, with the Sea Lion exhibit being among the most popular attractions among the group.
Throughout the day, the specially-made blue EGAN Pediatrics t-shirts made for the event and worn by staff, patients and their families/caregivers could be spotted throughout the zoo. Approximately 60 people attended in total, including the children, their families and caregivers, as well as EGAN Pediatrics employees.
A wonderful time was had by all, and the event was so successful EGAN Pediatrics is considering making it an annual affair.
