Smiling, healthy children and adults who at one time were very sick patients at Methodist Hospital’s NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) will reunite with their doctors, nurses and other caregivers to celebrate the NICU’s 20th anniversary and share a time of reflection and fun from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 13, at Arcadia Community Center, 365 Campus Drive.
City and state representatives will present Methodist Hospital’s NICU department and Dennis Lee, president and CEO, with certificates of achievement at 12:30 p.m.
The vast majority of births are uncomplicated. However, if problems arise, Methodist Hospital has a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) on site, allowing babies to receive the best possible care without delay. A multidisciplinary team with specialized knowledge and clinical expertise in the critical care of babies provides coverage 24 hours a day.
