Hamilton Medical Center’s (HMC) Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is inviting former patients and families to a drop-in reunion event on Sunday, Dec. 8 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the lobby of the Anna Shaw Children’s Institute.
“We have become very close with lots of families over the years,” said Nikki Pasley, NICU manager. “We are so excited to have a reunion. It’s like seeing our extended family, some of them for the first time in years!”
HMC’s NICU is a Level III facility, taking babies born at any point in a pregnancy. HMC’s NICU not only serves Whitfield and Murray counties but also cares for critically ill infants from around the region. The unit has private rooms available, which allows parents and families to stay with their babies as much as possible during this critical time.
“It’s very important for us to provide family-centered care,” said Pasley.
