Meet Staff Sgt. Nathan Canine from Fort Belvoir Community Hospital


Staff Sgt. Nathan Canine

It’s not every day you walk around a corner in a hospital and find a valued member of the staff with four paws. This is Staff Sgt. Nathan Canine,  recently promoted from corporal (his rank in the video),  a therapy dog at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital. While working on an update to a piece we did on the hospital’s opening, we ran into Nathan and Kristen Maisano, a doctor of occupational therapy at the hospital who told us about her four-legged companion’s duties.

On top of being very cute and friendly, Nathan can fold laundry, act as a sleep companion and simply provide comfort to wounded service members.

If you’re at the hospital, stop by and say hello.

  1. I’d like to say “thank you” to our military medical system for finding innovative and effective ways to care for our ill and wounded.
