Jenny Ackemann and her daughters, Eleanor and Juliet, recently presented new stuffed animals to Dr. Mark Schane, chief medical officer and pediatrician, in gratitude for the care Eleanor received at Longs Peak Hospital.

Dr. Schane, who treated Eleanor when she was hospitalized, gave her a comforting teddy bear during her stay. Wishing to pass along the same comfort to other pediatric patients, Eleanor brought these plush buddies to the hospital.

Her generosity brings joy not only to other children but to our care providers as well.

Longs Peak Hospital offers specialized care for our youngest patients up through adolescents via a pediatric-hospitalist model. This means that if your child is admitted to the hospital in Longmont, you can expect consistent care with our local board-certified pediatricians. If your child requires a higher level of care, you can rest assured; our pediatricians have a strong collaborative relationship with Children’s Hospital Colorado. Our hospital strives to provide excellent communication to parents as well as our littlest patients, taking time with families to better understand concerns and assure all questions are addressed. Our pediatricians communicate with your child’s regular physician to keep them informed of the medical care your child receives.
