Mission Regional Medical Center celebrated the Gift of Life with graduates
of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at its 4th Annual Little Miracles
NICU Reunion Party on Wednesday, October 8th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
at Mission Regional Medical Center.
The Hospital hosted a Circus theme reunion party for the families of more
than 450 exceptional babies who were cared for in their Level III NICU
since August 2005. The little NICU graduates and their families gathered.
Guests enjoyed entertainment, music, games, and prizes. Families received
a gift along with heavy hors d’oeuvres, refreshments, cake and a
variety of other desserts. The reunion gives families an opportunity to
meet once again with the NICU staff, as well socialize with other parents.
Throughout the year, our team of nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists,
dieticians and pharmacists worked hard to make sure each baby received
the best care possible, giving parents peace of mind. "It is nice
to know we have made a difference to so many families," said Anne
Wilson, director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Many parents have remained in contact with the staff, updating them on
the progress of their children and thanking them for their care.
Mission Regional Medical Center is pleased to have impacted the lives of
so many families in a positive way. The hospital is proud of the level
of care, the success of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the commitment
of its staff.
