Therapy dogs lined up to greet workers at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center on Thursday.

A group of therapy dog teams from the Alliance of Therapy Dogs gathered with proper social distancing to show support for the hospital workers as their shifts changed.

The support teams lined up with signs of encouragement.

"We are still thinking about them, and we are really happy and thankful for all that they are still doing for our communities," said Denise Fitzgerald, a tester for the Alliance of Therapy Dogs.

Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center has made it a practice to use therapy dogs to offer emotional support and much needed distractions for patients.
