Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

We really liked one nurse in the NICU named Diane. She cared for our child like she was her own. 


Nurse Michelle was awesome and deserves a pat on the back.

We had a night nurse named Nick that gave great care to my child.
The two transport nurses that transferred my child to Children’s were the best.
Wow! Need more of these nurses.
