LAUREL,MS - (WDAM) South Central Regional Medical Center is taking steps to help children feel comfortable with hospital visits.

SCRMC is holding its annual Well Doll Clinic. The clinic gives kindergartens and first grades the opportunity to check in their stuffed animals as if they are patients.

The dolls receive ID badges, get weighed in, and tested for illnesses.

The clinic will also host the children on April 14 and April 15.
