Help provide transportation assistance & preemie support for families with critically ill newborns born at Northside Hospital.
Northside Hospital delivers more babies than any other hospital in the country. In our Level III Special Care Nurseries (NICU), as many as 125 premature and special-needs babies are cared for at one-time. Many families spend days, weeks or even months in the unit and are not able to handle extra needs and expenses associated with their stay. Unplanned time-off from work and increased travel to-and-from the hospital is a new reality for them.
By providing assistance to parents, we hope to relieve families of stress and increase time parents are able to spend in the NICU with their newborn. This additional time helps support parents emotionally and improves rates of breastfeeding and Kangaroo Care.
