Not Your Typical Hospital Gift Shop.
Ottumwa Regional Health Center’s gift shop, “Occasions!” is not your typical hospital gift shop “We are striving to be not only a place where you can go to buy mylar balloons, get well cards and stuffed animals, but a full-range gift shop,” stated Occasions! Gift Shop Manager.
Occasions! Gift Shop at Ottumwa Regional is stocked with gifts for patients, friends and family of all ages. “We have a huge selection of newborn baby clothing, toys and gifts. We carry games, toys, puzzles, and coloring books for older children too. There is a selection of magazines and greetings cards.” The gift shop is a favorite of employees of ORHC, who often come in and browse on their coffee or lunch breaks.
“We have a large selection of Mylar balloons for get well, kids, new moms, birthdays, and for all other patients that may visit the health center”.
A whole section behind the checkout desk is stocked with sundries such as umbrellas, pantyhose, batteries, deodorant, film, etc. And we always carry a variety of collectibles.
