Children’s Hospital New Orleans Partners with MaryMac’s Doggie Retreat
NEW ORLEANS – Children’s Hospital New Orleans has announced a partnership with MaryMac’s Doggie Retreat, the city’s first black-owned canine day care, to ensure employees’ pets are well taken care of when they return to work following the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
“Children’s Hospital has worked diligently to provide basic necessities for our team members in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, including housing, access to showers, gasoline, laundry, childcare and more—all essential to their ability to return to work,” said Jonathan Brouk, chief operating officer at Children’s Hospital New Orleans. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Courtney and the team at MaryMac’s Doggie Retreat to also provide complimentary pet care for our team members in need.”
“Hurricane Ida had devastating effects on the entire community, and that includes our pets too. It’s understandable that dog owners might be anxious leaving behind their babies when they go back to work,” said Courtney McWilliams of MaryMac’s Doggie Retreat. “I am committed to making sure that their pets’ needs are met, so they can be at ease while at work taking care of our city’s children.”
