Families with children who spent time in the SJRMC NICU are invited to join staff for food, games and to reconnect. The reunion will be held in the Education Center, garden level and on the patio outside the dining room at SJRMC’s Mishawaka campus, weather permitting.
“We are privileged to serve people during the most significant moments of their lives,” said Keely Paston, RN, BSN, MBA, administrative director, Maternal Child Services. “When these families are in our NICU, they become part of our family. It’s refreshing to see these precious children and their families grow together through the years.”
SJRMC’s Level III NICU, located at the Mishawaka hospital, provides advanced services for babies who need extra care. The SJRMC NICU has 12 private rooms where parents are welcome to stay with their baby 24 hours a day.
Expert care is provided around the clock by a team of professionals, including a neonatologist, a neonatal nurse practitioner and nurses specializing in the care of premature and sick newborns.
Families who have questions about the NICU Reunion may call 574-335-3919.
