“We are very excited to sponsor the LRMC NICU Graduate Reunion,” said Pam Kennard, BSN, RNC, NICU Manager. “The NICU staff becomes very attached to our tiny patients and their families. They leave a permanent impression on our hearts, and we are looking forward to having the opportunity to see them again.”
People of all ages who were treated in LRMC’s NICU, as well as their family members, are invited to attend the event, as the NICU staff would like to celebrate the health and growth of each patient. Attendees will enjoy food and games.
As the area’s largest Level II NICU, LRMC is specially equipped to care for newborns as small as 2.2 pounds. Our on-staff neonatologists work closely with our highly-trained NICU nurses and respiratory therapists to deliver the most sophisticated life-saving care in a technologically advanced, yet nurturing environment.
Equipped with the womb-like cradles of the intensive care beds, premature and at-risk newborns can thrive. LRMC provides Kangaroo Care that cultivates physical bonding between the baby and parents. And with the state-of-the-art Giraffe beds, NICU nurses are provided with immediate access to babies who require intense interventions, while allowing for a protected environment for premature babies. In addition, when appropriate, LRMC offers CPR instruction and sleep apnea monitor training when it’s time to go home.
