Saturday, October 8th was a special day for the NICU staff at Riverside Community Hospital. More than 1,200 guests, including NICU graduates and their families, attended Riverside Community Hospital’s 4th bi-annual NICU Reunion.
The reunion took place from 12:00pm to 4:00pm in the hospital’s physician’s parking lot and the Health Education Center. The fun-filled event included a petting zoo, clowns, food, jumpers, a cake walk, and more. At the event, the staff and physicians from Riverside Community Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) reunited with past patients and their families.
This was an emotional, yet joyous occasion for some families as they hugged and thanked the staff members who cared for them and their babies during that very stressful time in the family’s life.
Riverside Community Hospital’s Level 3B Neonatal Intensive Care Unit serves infants born between 22 -24 weeks of gestation and later. A transport team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, traveling to hospitals throughout the region to pick up and stabilize infants in need of specialized intensive care.
