St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas Hosts Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Reunion

9/30/2011 12:00:00 AM

On Saturday, Oct. 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas Center, located at St. David’s North Austin Medical Center, will host a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) reunion for babies born and cared for in the facility’s NICU.

AUSTIN—On Saturday, Oct. 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas Center, located at St. David’s North Austin Medical Center, will host a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) reunion for babies born and cared for in the facility’s NICU.

The reunion will offer train-themed entertainment for families, including an inflatable circus, a trackless train, a photo booth and clown entertainment. The event will serve kid-friendly food and drinks, including sandwiches, cottoncandy and popcorn.

Because of the intense nature of the care provided for babies in the NICU and the length of their stay, doctors and nurses often form lifelong relationships with their patients.

“These reunions mean as much to our nursing staff as they do to the families,” Yvette McDonald, director of the NICU at St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas, said. “When our nurses care for these babies, they form bonds with them, and it’s great to see the children grow and prosper. This event also gives families an opportunity to thank the nurses and doctors who cared for their children during their hospital stay.”

The NICU Reunion will take place in front of the main entrance to St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas. The main entrance to the women’s center is located on the east side of St. David’s North Austin Medical Center.
