The Special Care Baby Unit at the Hutt Hospital now have Tree Hutt scrub tops for their staff. These Tree Hutt scrubs are the same as the ones in the Emergency Department based on the principle of distraction therapy. Instead of the normal medical uniform, staff can elect to use the ones from the Tree Hutt that  take the child’s mind off any procedure by concentrating on something else that is more friendly and is a pleasing sensory stimuli .

The Tree Hutt scrub tops were made possible through a grant from the Infinity Foundation Limited.
