Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Reunion Celebrates Triumph and Courage

Posted in:
More than 400 tiny tots and loved ones will reunite with their caregivers on Sunday, October 8 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for a one of kind reunion at Marian Regional Medical Center (MRMC).

This special day will celebrate the courageous beginnings of hundreds of little ones who often only came into the world weighing less than three pounds.

MRMC will host its third annual Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) graduation celebration on the hospital grounds, where the children and families of the NICU will have a chance to celebrate with the medical staff, nurses, and volunteers that make Marian’s NICU so remarkable. NICU graduates and families in attendance will experience food, games, family portraits, face painting, fingerprinting, and a visit from a local fire engine for the children to enjoy.

Marian’s 21-bed, Community (Level III) Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is the most sophisticated and technologically-advanced Unit in the region, providing exceptional care to the tiniest of patients.

For additional information or questions about the MRMC NICU, please contact Sara San Juan at (805) 739-3574 or [email protected].
