For our fifth year, we are working together to raise $50,000, which will be enough to purchase a state-of-the-art NICU bed for for micro-preemies and critically ill infants. This highly-specialized bed acts like a mother’s womb to further stabilize the baby and promote growth and development, while also helping prevent brain bleeding and other complications.You can’t put to words the feeling of when a newborn enters the world. When that happens, Blank Children’s wants to give that newborn every chance of survival. The NICU offers the latest technology and has been pioneering newborn care for more than 45 years. Blank Children’s was the first NICU in the world to offer private-room care. With the purchase of this new bed, it will help continue the legacy of advanced, individualized and family-centered care.
