NNICU Staff Spreads Holiday Cheer to New Moms
NNICU Staff Spreads Holiday Cheer to New Moms

December 23, 2014

(New York, NY-December 23, 2014) The staff of HHC Bellevue Hospital Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NNICU) recently hosted a holiday party for the NNICU families with babies in the unit. Because this time of the year can be difficult for families with a baby in the NNICU, the staff throws a party every year to brighten their patient’s holidays. The moms and other family members made “wish ornaments” and baby shirts for their little ones.
